I was inbound to Homestead AFB a long time ago in a Navy P-3 . As we were vectored over the Bahamas and into the Miami area, I proceeded to give my best "PA," pointing out the sights to the crew. As I wound down, we heard this from Miami approach:

Miami Approach:
"That's very interesting, Navy Quartet 35. Now that your stuck mic is fixed, contact Homestead Approach on 119.2!"

An embarassing silence followed, and the student was given radio duty!
