Default Should have instructed wife......

So I have been wiring the intercom and radio stuff for a while and I am finally done, so I needed a test, found the hand held paired up a frequency and went back into the house and said here, listen to this and check if you can here me, go back into garage, get in plane and transmit (4 Romeo Tango radio check ) and then I hear over my head set: (this is sexy beast come in! ) Geez! climb out of the plane as fast as I can, run back into the house and start yelling HEY HEY! stop! this is a live aircraft frequency! I ca romba, I should have explained a little more detail what I needed, but hey, at least the radio works!

I'm assuming you were sharp enough to pick something other than 123.05 for this check....

Why? What's wrong with those two Chanel's? O and if anyone is curios, well I was anyway, after receiving a letter from NOAA confirming my Kannad 406 registration, I performed the top of the hour (ON) test for 4 seconds and no phone calls or SWAT!

Default Radio Check

That's funny !! Knowing a lot of pilots, it surprises me that you didn't get a dozen replies, no matter what frequency you were on. LOL
