In a situation where a transmission to/from ATC is "interfered with"
by a second transmission I've always believed that it is useful to let
all parties know that the tranmission was blocked, even if I suspect
that I'm not the intended receiver.


Until this thread, I never really thought much about this. But today it
happened to me, and boy was it annoying.

I was coming back to HPN. Tower issued me a long stream of
instructions, including pattern entry, sequencing, and a traffic
advisory. Somebody stepped on the tower, but I still got every word of
what she said through the squeal. I was just about to reply, when some
bozo popped up on the frequency with "blocked".

So, yeah, I'm going to throw my vote in with the camp that says, "Don't
say, 'blocked'".

imagine what would happen with 8 or nine people doing that. then
reporting the "blocked" being "blocked".

if everyone were to abide by that the blockage would increase
exponentially and no one would be communicating.

its pointless and detrimental to safety.
