Default East Coast Guard Idiots....

I flew up and down the east coast for a couple of days and then ended the trip out west.

On the east, there were almost constant idiot games on guard. The meowing, beavis, and other nonsense was really bad. I mean nearly continuous.

Out west, past Mississippi, I donít think I heard any of it, even once.

Anyone got any theories on why itís so bad over 1/2 the country?

-And when the hell is the FAA gonna come down on some of these dumb ****s? They have warned folks. They definitely have the capability. Iím all for nailing some of these jerks. I have absolutely no sympathy for anyone who ruins their career with meowing.

"ALPA Aviation Safety Chair: "Please Adhere to Guard Frequency Protocols"
Those who monitor ATC communications and use of the guard frequency have contacted ALPA asking pilots to refrain from misuse of 121.5 for any communications other than an emergency and to use standard radio phraseology in all radio transmissions.
"I would like to remind all members to adhere to standard communications techniques and protocols at all times," says ALPA Aviation Safety chair Captain Steve Jangelis. "The use of nonstandard phraseology can be a causal factor for confusion by other pilots trying to maintain situational awareness, and events leading up to runway incursions, altitude deviations, frequency congestion, and near midair collisions."
Jangelis also reminds pilots that transmissions on guard frequencies should be nearly nonexistent except for emergency situations or for passing critical information to mitigate hazardous situations.
Familiarization with and adherence to standard phraseology, and use of the guard frequency only for communicating flight-safety issues will help ensure that the highest level of safety and professionalism is maintained."

I agree. Itís totally out of control. Makes me wonder about the weak d$ck leadership from the Captains in those cockpits. The funny thing is that it only happens in the United States. You donít hear that childish crap anywhere else in the world.

Do they no longer teach what that frequency is there for? Do the idiots chatting on guard prank call 911 for fun on off days? I wonder how many radio calls are missed on the primary frequency due to idiots jabbering away on guard.

A few things I've noticed.
1. Only guys. I've never heard a female, not once.
2. Don't say anything. Please, it's like chumming the water. It just attracts more of them and makes things worse.
3. Don't assume it's some RJ pilot. I once rode a legacy JS and the young captain was doing it. "Meow." I wanted to strangle him. Finally the FO told him to please stop.

My suspicion is that they are probably building some cases right now.....

https://www.nbaa.org/ops/cns/faa-fcc-investigating-misuse-of-121.5-mhz-mayday-frequency.php

Itís not hard to triangulate the broadcast and pull a few CVRs. The guard idiots would never know.

Maybe they will find a few who have done this frequently and throw the book at them. You often hear the same voices....

I canít wait!

And once again, such a stupid way to kill a career. There is no way anyone can talk their way through this stupidity in an interview. People who get nailed doing this are 100% done. They will never get hired anywhere worth working at.

You do remember that you started a carbon copy of this same thread content in November of 2015, right? Just bored and need to stir things up?

It looks like Skidmark is one of the offenders in post #2 above. The mods ought to get his URL and send it to the feds.
