Radio Frequency Discipline
The 'steady significant increase in air traffic is being accompanied by a required increase in voice communications between
controllers and pilo.ts.. Most air traffic control (ATC) frequencies
are simplex, meaning that both the facility and the pilot transmit
and receive on the same frequency.
This has often been referred to as a "party telephone line."
Simply stated when one party is transmitting on the frequency,
it cannot be used by another party.
Excessive and unnecessary transmissions by a pilot interfere
not only with normal operations, but they can also create a hazard
by blocking an emergency transmission from the facili~ty ar ~nother
This c~n be particularly critical at radar locations where
radar vectors are provided to separate and sequence aircraft and
vectoring airspace is limited. In any case, unnecessary use of a
frequency is not good operating practice and is a disservice to other
pilots as well as to the ATC facility.
ATC is constantly reviewing means for reducing and refining
phraseologies and transmissions. In cooperation with the industry
much has,been accomplished.
For example, position reports have been virtually eliminated
when ai~:eraft are under radar control; standard instrument arrival
procedures are being studied for possible application on a n~tional
Although these and other actions taken have signiflca~ntly
reduced frequency congestion, much more can be accomplished
by recognition of and action on factors within the control of the
individual using ATC frequencies.

Recommended Pilot Actions
1. Be aware of the need for frequency discipline.
2. Be aware of and tuned to the proper frequency to use ~or
the specific ATC function being provided.
3. Listen before talking. There could be emergency transmissions on the frequency you intend to use. Also, listening will often
provide you with information you need if you intercept a controller's transmission to another aircraft; such as wind direction,
velocity, runway in use, altimeter setting, weather, etc. (When you
this type of transmission, be sure to tell the con4. Say what needs to be
flight only to the extent that what you want oe need to do is clear
to both you and the controller.
5. Flight and classroom instructors should assure that student
are aware of the need for frequency discipline and that students are indoctrinated in the use of proper and timely phraseology. Experienced pilots should periodically check for the development of bad habits in the use of/radio techniques.
6. Check your speech rates and enunciation. Are you regularly
being requested to repeat a transmission? If so, you may be talking
too fast or not clearly. Do not be too self.crRieal if this happens
occasionally. The cut, troller may be listening to several frequencies
and may not hear part of your transmission because of one from
a pilot on a different frequency. Even the high-density facilities
combine positions of operating during periods of light traffic.
7. Remember in using a simplex frequency when you talk, you
cannot hear on that frequency.
8. Assttre that microphone buttons are closed when you com.
plete a transmission. Frequencies are often jammed by this condition; and even if the offender can be identified, there is no way'
to inform him of the situation.
9. As a cardinal rule, keep the frequency to be used avail,able
for use by every one to the maximum extent possible.
(Excerpts from FAA Advisory Circular date 17 May 1968).

Golden Rules for Flying
CHECK-OUT . . . PLAN AHEAD . . . "
Never fly an aircraft until you have been checked o~t by a
qualified instructor and have completed a minimum of:
I. One hour ground familiarization with controls/systems md
aircraft operating limitations.
2. Eight regular take-offs and landings (day or night).
3. Two cross-wind take-offs and landings.
4. Two short field rake-offs and landings.
5. Repeat above if no recent experience in this model. (6
Never start u~til you have:
1. Checked weight and balance data. (Assure you are not overloaded)
2. Determined that all objects in the cabin are secure and
free of the controls.
3. Completed "walk around" pre-flight inspection.
4. Determined that you have enough fuel on board for your
flight.., plus 15 minutes for take-off and 45 minutes at destination.

Both these young graduates of the Academy are former

Lieutenant Lutton was named winner of
CAP's annual 25 Year Honor Roll Award at
the Academy as the former CAP cadet who
ranked highest in his class. He was on the
dean's list for four years for scholastfc excellence and will now study at Purdue Uni~:iiiiiii! versity for a master's degree in astronautics.
Lieutenant McConnell won CAP's General William Mitchell Award, presented each
year to the Air Force Academy graduate
who is outstanding in military training. He too will pursue
graduate study.

recently when a two-and-a-half
month-old girl was released from
Colorado General Hospital.
The baby daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Williams of La Junta, was
born with Kell disease. Specialists
at La Junta's Mennonite Hospital
decided to have the baby flown to
Denver for further treatment,
Denver pilots Lt. Col. Marian
Tankersley and Lt. Col. Russ Hashman volunteered to make the flight.
After a two week stay in the Denver hospital the baby had recovered sufficiently to be released and
returned to her home in La Junta.

PORT NEWARK, N.J.--It was a
warm Saturday morning ~t the

Colonel Boran discussed the purpose of the mission, qualifications
for participants and stressed that
safcty precautions would be adhered to at all times.
Colonel Boron explained the details of the problems which involved three aircraft departing
from three different locations and

The New Jersey Wing had been
