This is the second time this issue has happened to me. As I was flying into LAX and being vectored by SoCal Apprach, then was told to contact tower I only heard approach.
When I requested 25L I was told to contact tower, so I did again thinking it was nothing but I was told to contact again. Once I got no response I executed a missed apprach and was planning on diverting to KSNA because I knew I wasn’t going to communicate with Tower.
I contacted Approach and requested multiple times to divert to KSNA but I guess they didn’t understand my intentions. I eventually landed at KLAX still being unable to hear both the Tower and Ground controller.
The following screenshots further show what I mean:
(me being tuned out of all frequencies but Approach is still playing in the background)
(me being tuned into Tower and requesting landing)
I’d like to also mention that I was only able to communicate with Approach, and that I wasn’t able to see other aircraft’s callsigns
