This is very simple. While working rbl hi sector during moderate traffic, frequency 134.67 went dead. None of the backups would work either. I had just finished vectoring 4 aircraft away from each other when the frequency went out of service. This has happened several times over the last year. It has been documented several times. This is a very dangerous situation that needs to be fixed. How would the flying public react to this information?
