Summary

2005-06-13: JZA 8901 DH8A enroute from Deer Lake (CYDF) to Halifax (CYHZ). On approach Runway 24. Contacted Halifax Tower appx. 10 miles final on 118.4 and was given landing info and told number 1. No further transmissions from Tower and pilot commenced overshoot due to no landing clearance received. Tape playback reveals no landing clearance issued and 4 calls on 118.4 from the aircraft while on short final with no response from Tower. Aircraft contacted Halifax Terminal on 119.2 after overshoot, cancelled IFR and returned to Tower Freq. 118.4 with no further problems. Aircraft landed Runway 24 at 1023Z. Controller thought landing clearance had been issued since ""Landing CX Issued"" box on EXCDS FDE was activated and subsequent calls from aircraft were not received in Tower until aircraft contacted 119.2. An investigation of equipment is underway in Halifax to determine why the calls on 118.4 were not received by the tower controller. Nil TSB
