I was in Hawaii earlier (not literally, more’s the pity) and I was flying from Honolulu to Hilo. I had only just left Honolulu when the tower at Hilo started repeatedly to ask me to contact the tower because I was in an active airspace, it was constant and every few seconds from just outside of PHOG up till the point I was able to tune into PHTO.
Unfortunately I couldn’t check in to his frequency earlier because it wasn’t available on my list of ATC frequencies, presumably because I was too far away. I’d filed a flight plan and far as I can tell I was being a good pilot and following all the right procedures. Is there anything I’m missing?
