Approach contact problem

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I had an IFR flight from KROA to KIAD yesterday and all went well until the approach phase. After receiving what should have been a vector to intercept the glideslope I was unable to communicate with approach control because he was busy communicating with other aircraft and I couldn't get a word in edgewise because of all the communications and ended up overshooting the intercept. When I was finally able to communicate with approach I was given another vector but by the time I received it I was to high and close to make it work. Any way to break in when there is so much communication to other aircraft happening or perhaps I just should have declared a missed approach?

Try turning down the traffic setting, I generally don't use higher than 30 in the VoxATC settings menu.
