AIRPORT CHAOS AFTER HOAX CALL

Hello and welcome back... Sometimes, I can't believe the stupidity of people.

Someone has decided that it would be funny to start transmitting on aircraft radio and issuing directions to airplanes saying they were from control towers, they even made a hoax mayday call to Avalon and Melbourne (Tullamarine) airports.

This happened 15 times...

Unauthorized transmissions on non-public radio channels is an offence, and the person responsible could face up to 20 years in prison.

Apart from the obvious danger to passengers and crew, this is the sort of behavior is what will make authority's say 'How can we stop this thing from happening again'
The result will be, that changes will be made and the hobby of Aviation listening will be a thing of the past.. all thanks to some dickhead.

This sort of shit pisses me off...I love Aviation monitoring, its about the only thing that hasn't changed much in 30 years which means you can still get a cheap receiver (or an old scanner), as long as it covers the aviation bands and be sure to hear something within a few mins.

If anyone knows who is doing this, please contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000
before its too late.

Oh yeah, and if you know them personally, give them a good smack in the head and tell them to wake up to themselves, courtesy of the aviation loving community.
