I also hate the premature “Freq Chg” sent by Controller w/o request when I’m still in there controlled airspace when only a tower is operational
Max, as you know: ATC in IF sometimes need to clean up the ‘flight strips’. “Freq Chg” is the only possibility to ask a pilot to switch to another frequency, and that sometime is really necessary, specially in SoCal, otherwise an unexperienced controller could loose control just due to the number of listed pilots in the app. I agree totally, often this command is used without any need, but if ATC is controlling several planes, please let’s follow this “Freq Chg” and switch to Unicom. For a pilot that’s not a problem, and ATC will have an easier life and better experience in PG.
