How do I contact center?

I am on a flight right now and was wondering how to contact the center as it won’t let me.


Hey! Are you within 270 nautical miles? For now you must be 270 nautical miles to be able to contact a center frequency.


Oh, got it now, thanks!

So I have to be less then 270 nautical miles even if I am in the controlled airspace off the ACC?

That’s correct. The lines for center coverage are just there for reference. For now you can only contact them up from 270 nautical miles at most.

Thanks so much for your reply! I understand now 😄

per OP request and resolved. 🙂
