I heard the following somewhere over Kentucky:

Approach: “Cirrus 123, contact Center on 124.125."

Cirrus: “Cirrus 123 uhhh, switching to 124.2.”

Approach: “Cirrus 123 the frequency is 124.125, twenty‑four, twelve, five.”

Cirrus: “Uhhh, was that 122.12?”

Approach: “No, 124‑decimal‑125.”

Cirrus: “Roger, ahh 124.25”

Approach: “Cirrus, the frequency is One. Two. Four. Point. One. Two. Fife.”

Anonymous: “Just pop the chute.”
