Flying into LAX right now aboard “FedEx 442 Heavy” had an issue with contacting “LOS ANGELES CENTER” at approximately “21:00 ZULU Time(SIM)” controlled by “ButterAllDay” I checked in after transferring from Vegas Departure. After a few minutes with no response Center contacted me requesting I check in. So I did, only to go another minute to receive another check in request from center. I then proceeded to give 2 more check ins that seemed to not be getting through. I eventually got through after a few minutes of this and had no further problems, but I just wanted to let the community know of my experience and see if anyone else had this same issue.
I’m sorry you had this experience. In future, please PM the controller you were having issues with rather than posting a topic about it. @Cooper was the controller at that time and you can sort it out with him via private message.
Hi there! I was your controller. I had on guarded you as I saw you were on the wrong center frequency. I had a huge workload so I’m sorry if you had a delayed response, but I’m glad that the rest of your experience was good. Sometimes, messages don’t go through as I always make sure to answer every message. It might’ve been a technical issue. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to DM me.
I’ve been noticing that aircraft will call in, but it won’t register for the ATC for a while, and with that comes ATC one way heard comms (an ex. Center contacting or giving instructions to an aircraft with no aural/ textual response from the aircraft for at least 5 mins). It might be a bug, and I apologize to @Snakes-Aboard that you didn’t have a perfect transition to the correct center. Hopefully these things can be rectified in future updates and help further bridge the gap between ATC and pilots!
