United Airlines Channel 9 - Reasons To Turn Off?

Hi all, this is my first posting to the forum, though I've been reading for many years.

I was recently talking to some United pilots before take-off about the Channel 9 system, and they said that on occasion they were required to turn it off for "security reasons."

Does anyone know what these reasons might be? Since they are all publicly accessible channels (i.e. you can pick up the signal if you have a scanner), there isn't anything on the airwaves that is that sensitive.

I can perhaps understand them wanting to turn it off if they are discussing a potential emergency on the flight, so as not to scare other passengers.

Also, certain United pilots apparently don't like having Channel 9 on at all...is that common?

Thanks fellas!

Generally, they'll turn it off for anything that the crew deems of special interest. Since, as a passenger, you are actually onboard the flight at the time, it would not be wise for the crew to scare their passengers.

When I worked at UA, I asked a captain on a flight I was flying on if Ch 9 could be on, he refused stating "nope, too many damned lawyers out there."

Plus, if any flight on the frequency has an emergency, they'll usually turn it off so as not to spook the pax.

I was on couple of UA flights last week and it was a pleasure to have the channel on both flights. Taking off from LGA, the captain asked the tower if he could have two more minutes holding short. The tower reluctantly, granted, don't know why but it didn't last two minutes, we were off.
Later on the same flight I could see the pilot coming off the cockpit and using the restroom, when ATC asked our flight if it is smooth at our altitude. When our FO was saying " yes it is pretty smooth.." we hit some serious bumps, he goes; "well, I take that back" and we went down to 26,000 for smoother air.
On our second flight, we had a lady in charge up front. At one point she was asked to go up to 34, and after doing that,
she called back and said "could i go back to 32" and she was OK'ed.
Both my flights Channel 9 was on from take-off to landing.

The crew you were flying with may have had it off because they didn't want people in back to hear them. That way they don't have to remember to be nice on the radio.

More often than not on the flights I have been on with UA, CH9 was on. My two most memorable events when it was on was firstly the first day the Star Alliance came into force in 1997 IIRC correctly. I was on a UA 777 that was holding on the taxiway when an AC747 went past us and hit our wing....Our captain came on the Radio and said to the AC Captian that you have hit our aircraft...he said he didn't and all those who wer listening on CH9 screamed..."oh yes you did!"...Its funny now but at the time it was a apin as of course our flight was cancelled!
The secon time was flying back from HKG to SFO, we were at cruising altitude and the Flightdeck advise us that we were a very close to I think Fosset doing a round the world record flight in his Balloon. We could not of course see them but our flightdeck conversed with him and on behalf on United wished him all the best....that was very special.
I think in general only a very few crews dont have CH9 on..thank god!

That is definitely not the case. We do not alter our tone or dialect with controllers due to CH9 being on. CH9 is an excellent tool however there are certain occasions that it will be switched off. Please allow the crew to turn this off without question. It is a special treat and may not always be appropriate.

There are many issues that could cause a crew to turn this off. When the airport is reporting Windshear I will generally switch it off, big line of Tstorms to avoid I switch it off, low visibility operations also. There are more, but those come to mind quickly. Often if someone is listening they will misinterpret what is being said as a hazard and it can lead to a misunderstanding of the state of the airplane in the passengers mind.

Not always. I was sitting on the ground at IAD once and had a audio ringside seat to another aircraft that had declared an emergency.

Same here. If anything, I've noticed an increase in the availabilty of CH 9 over the past year.

I've been on a flight during which there was an FAA guy plus another jumpseater up front, and Channel 9 was still on. I actually got to hear the captain call maintenance to request a new FMC after we landed - apparently one of the ones in the plane wasn't displaying position on the moving map properly. The captain, by the way, was fantastic, and kept us up to date with clear but not dumbed down information about our delay from MSP (pipes had frozen in the plane due to a very cold overnight).

I have to second that. On my many talks with many pilots in UA the constant answer is "too many lawyers out there". The one thing i forget to ask is on my flights to the islands (HNL, KOA, OGG and LIH) Ch.9 is always turned off during the mid part of the flight, its on for about an hour then off then back on about 2 hours before landing.

A couple of weeks ago, I was on a UA 737 from ORD to RIC, and the captain announced that there was a ball game on, and he would see if he could put it on channel 9. He said he knew that was the channel where people listen to cockpit communications, but he thought more people would be interested in the ball game, so that's what we got. I was very disappointed.

I have no idea if this actually happens, but I can guess that they'd turn Channel 9 off if there were any security-critical flights in the area. Although you can pick up Channel 9 from the ground, under normal circumstances, passengers have no access to radio equipment in flight and the TSA is just paranoid enough to think that somebody would listen in on Channel 9 to plan some kind of security event when Air Force Two is flying through or something like that. Never underestimate how stupid TSA can be in the US.

I love Channel 9. Best part was landing at O'Hare when the tower ordered a go-around due to the previous aircraft not clearing the runway. Rather than going "what the !@$!?" I knew it was coming and got to savour the moment of a full thrust climb at very low weight. Fun times.

Over the ocean, planes are out of radio contact with ATC due to the limitations of the horizon. That's for regular VHF radio, of course. They can use HF radio to make their position reports, but that has a lot of static, so it would be a pain for passengers to listen to on Channel 9 (and not much is said, even less with CPDLC's increased commonality). The pilots will also switch to the VHF air-to-air frequencies to talk to other pilots, but the conversation isn't exactly G-rated or relevant to flight, so Channel 9 will be switched off.

Not really. The FAA has specific rules for what can be said over the radio. Those rules are frequently broken, but should something go wrong, a pilot (or controller) could be held liable for non-standard things they said, even if they weren't remotely related to the incident. For some, the chance of a lawsuit isn't worth it. It's a shame, and if I were a UA captain I'd think differently, but I can't really question their judgement on it.

No they wouldn't. Simply using non-standard phraseology would never meet even a summary judgment threshold.

How would channel 9 being on or off make any difference? Since I assume FAA records all their controllers conversations, in the event of an incident, if a UA pilot or controller has said anything inappropriate, its going to be recorded.

It doesn't even have to be a screwup on your part. All it takes is a "previous aircraft went around with a windshear alert" statement from the tower, and some passenger gets really nervous and sues for emotional distress. Would they win? Most likely not, as Alireza says, but you don't need that extra headache of having to get your own lawyer and fight it.

Like I said, I don't agree with that logic, but I can see where they're coming from.
