Weird radio failure issue

This is more of a bug report rather than to ask for a solution.

During FNF today it encountered a radio problem. When switching from approach to tower at WMKK, I hit “Send and Switch”. I open the menu to send the ON THE ILS message, but instead I see the unicom ATC menu. Tower then sends me “say intentions”. I checked the frequency list of the airport and still don’t see tower. I ended up going around, annoucing a missed approach to appr frequency and reconnecting to network to fix the problem.

I have actually encounter this problem twice before, once at CYUL and once at RJAA, but both of those times I didn’t tune into tower (no appr frequency).

Do you have a replay or a picture to kinda emphasise it more?

As I there was no tower frequency could this be the invisible tower frequency bug?

Yeah it is. I was just unsure if anyone had encoutered it when on the tower frequency before so I made the post.

Yes, it’s a known issue @xsrvmy

Replay doesn’t really help, except one info: the Tower frequency shows as WMKK (118.80) in the replay

This has happened to me twice, always during frequency switch to tower. Once on final and once during ground to tower frequency. I would receive the instructions but my ATC window showed unicom and my replies would transmit on unicom. When i was on final i received ‘please follow instructions or you will be ghosted’ and my ATC window didnt show any active controllers, only unicom.
