I took off from st petersburg whitted, and changed frequencys to macdill AFB. I was climbing to 2300 ft. Macdill tower cleared me into their airspace, then said something but I didn't hear it, so I asked them to repeat what they had said. Someone then jumped onto the radio, so I waited until it was clear, then asked again to repeat the information. I was told I was in class B, then to descend to 1100 ft. I complied, and was xferred to tampa approach. I called tampa approach once I returned to melbourne.
