This evening I was approaching and attempting to land in Orlando KMCO: When I reached Approach, I repeatedly [about 6 times] said my intentions for requesting approach, but I don’t believe @Jonathan_limento was receiving my calls inbound [18r ILS approach] as he kept requesting my intentions. Eventually after about 2-3 times of him asking for intentions I believe one of my call ins went through, and everything was fine.
Until… I was cleared to contact tower on 17L, (see pictures below), as I switched over and requested landing at 17L, I don’t believe it went through. I repeatedly requested with silence (maybe 4 times) tower eventually sent out contact request and airspace warnings, at about 500 feet, I aborted landing because I didn’t have clearance and both approach and tower were asking me to contact tower. I proceeded to go into go around/missed approach phase, and tried to recontact approach, with more silence.
I ended up ending the flight because I didn’t want to get ghosted for being unresponsive and not following instructions.
I am playing on an ipad pro, and the most up to date IF version. All my connect/server connections were green.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? See the pictures below for the complete communication transactions.
(As far back as it would let me go)
