Just finished flying from PHNL-PHTO, and when I contacted Hilo approach they never responded. I knew they could see me because they moved an arrival out of the way for me to land, when I contacted tower the controller didn’t respond but I knew they saw me because they told traffic who had just landed to expedite off and after I cross the numbers they lined someone up, and when I vacated they cleared the plane to take off. So what I’m saying is ATC could see me but they couldn’t respond to my requests. I was on love for almost 2 hours does that play a role on the connection issue?
