I made a VFR approach and proper entry to runway 15 at kissimmee, fl. This is the longest and most used runway. I called in a report on downwind, base leg, and final on what I thought was the CTAF 122.7. I did not receive any response, but this is not unusual at an uncontrolled field. On final approach I observed another aircraft landing on runway 6. However, this aircraft was down and holding short before I landed on 15. After landing, I learned the local CTAF is 122.72 and that my xmissions had not been received. There was no close call nor dangerous incident involved.

Title: AN SMT PLT LANDED AT ISM WHILE BROADCASTING ON THE WRONG UNICOM FREQ.
Narrative: I MADE A VFR APCH AND PROPER ENTRY TO RWY 15 AT KISSIMMEE, FL. THIS IS THE LONGEST AND MOST USED RWY. I CALLED IN A RPT ON DOWNWIND, BASE LEG, AND FINAL ON WHAT I THOUGHT WAS THE CTAF 122.7. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY RESPONSE, BUT THIS IS NOT UNUSUAL AT AN UNCTLED FIELD. ON FINAL APCH I OBSERVED ANOTHER ACFT LNDG ON RWY 6. HOWEVER, THIS ACFT WAS DOWN AND HOLDING SHORT BEFORE I LANDED ON 15. AFTER LNDG, I LEARNED THE LCL CTAF IS 122.72 AND THAT MY XMISSIONS HAD NOT BEEN RECEIVED. THERE WAS NO CLOSE CALL NOR DANGEROUS INCIDENT INVOLVED.
