Not really, I've posted my email address in this NG in recent history.
I just choose to not have it in my headers. I currently don't have a
lot of spam and want to keep it that way. If anyone asks, I'll be happy
to email them my contact info. It's no secret.

You can also look me up on QRZ...K7SLE.

I expect similar is true for Newps, if there were a need. The point is that
"Chris G." has no more meaning here than "Newps". Of all the people who
might make a comment about the identity he chooses to use, the fact that it
turned out to be you is pretty ironic, IMHO.

Actually, the FSDO in Hillsboro, Oregon, was VERY helpful.


How do you know that?



There is no
need to bug the tracon or center with this question. They're busy making
sure planes get to where they need to be.


Planes seem to get to where they need to be without involving TRACON or
Center.

The local FSDO helped me quite a bit in finding the references I need.
Look in FAA Order 7110.65 Para. 10-2-5 (2b). I've quoted it for your
convenience and the link is provided. It references Jay's specific
situation.
http://www.faa.gov/ATpubs/ATC/Chp10/atc1002.html#10-2-5


That reference was posted in this thread yesterday.

No, approach control.



Ok thanks, Newps.

Key up on the frequency in question with an "Attention any aircraft this
frequency, this is Piper 56993, apparently I've lost comm with the

Center,
could you relay a message to ATC for me?"


And when nobody answers? This was in the wee hours.


You should be phrasing your question: "if" nobody answers, not "when"
nobody answers. The wee hours around ATL and ZTL finds aircraft on
frequency all night. I imagine ZAU and C90 have about the same traffic
around the clock these days. Even Sunday night/ Monday wee early morning
has some traffic on the freq almost every minute.

If in the very unlikely event that the ATC freq is somehow devoid of air
traffic, then try it again on Guard.

Chip, ZTL

And if that doesn't work? (My Risk Management training coming to the

fore).

Then crash and set off the ELT. We will find you.


Well t'anks fer nuttin'!!

10-2-5. EMERGENCY SITUATIONS

BIG SNIP

I was having an emergency?

Perhaps that was my problem -- I didn't consider the lack of planning (i.e.:
Poor radio coverage in the Rantoul area) on Chicago's part to be an
emergency on my part.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is that considered a legitimate use of
121.5?

I have been under the impression that 121.5 was reserved for
emergencies only.


We hear at least a dozen calls a day from airliners calling airliners
because they missed a freq change. You use what works.


Thanks. I'll store that away in the old brain box for future use.
