Every time I listen to the tower when a plane has landed, I hear something like this: "Delta 2431 exit at bravo then ground point four when you're clear"

What frequency is "point four" (or "point eight", etc)??? Does that mean that all airports have very similar ground frequencies?

When the approach control hands off the plane to the tower he'll tell the pilot to contact the tower and say the full frequency. So why not with the ground?

I often wondered the same thing. Is all the ground frequencies 121.something?

Burbank Airport and San Diego Lindbergh has a ground frequency of 123.900, San Diego Brown Field 124.4, San Francisco 124.25, Sacramento Executive 125.0. These are just off the top of my head in my area, so obviously that last post is incorrect. It may be seen as the average or generic ground frequency however. -Ryan
