All of you playground controllers, even ex-playground controllers, were or are you annoyed that you want to control a tower frequency, however the anonymous playgrounders pick just the tower frequency, and leave the ground frequency for someone to pick up. What do you think the reasoning for this is? I’ll give you my idea.
The reason why I want both a tower and ground frequency is because tower is more challenging, and more worthwhile. Departure, approach and center, well, not a lot of pilots on PG will listen to my instructions, and I don’t know every specific thing about controlling that. Since tower is challenging, and since the playgrounders trust PG idiots to taxi themselves safely to a random runway, they only “worry” about importing and exporting each plane in or out of the airport. I mean, ground is challenging, but only once in a while. What is your belief to this “Pick tower, heck with ground” fad?
