Ill tune a frequency in like 122.8 and randomly the radios will go to 118.000. Its very annoying especially on vatsim.

How often does the frequency get lost?
Where does this happen?
What VHF - Captain or First Officer?
What is the position of the FREQ SEL switch at this moment?

This happened to me when I tuned the right radio (VC) to 118.550. Both settings on the left radio were suddenly the same as the right radio settings. I was tuning the right radio to listen to the ATIS, while leaving the left radio set to the arrival airport tower freq (active), and arrival airport ground freq (stby).

Well for me I only use the captains ( left stack ) and I will switch freq between active and standby. It happens when airbourne randomly there are times where its like a few minutes where it happens and the longest time where it hasnt has been about 15 mins.

I regards to the active switch I use both so sometimes its left and sometimes its right. Now I will set both active freq on both so when it goes to 118.000 i jsut tune the other one, however its hard to tell when this happens as you can assume.
