Filed VFR ADIZ local clearance with leesburg AFSS in person. After preflight, called potomac clearance delivery for transponder code and departure frequency. Departed jyo and called potomac departure to activate clearance. Contact was made and then advised to return to unicom advisory frequency. Several lndgs and takeoffs were made remaining in traffic pattern VFR. Extended downwind leg to practice localizer runway 17 approach VFR under class B airspace. Used unicom frequency advising location so as not to conflict with other VFR traffic. Jyo unicom called me to contact potomac clearance delivery upon completion of landing. Called potomac and was told not to fly outside the VFR traffic pattern. I explained that I was not aware of the procedures concerning practicing a VOR runway 17 published approach in VFR conditions. I asked potomac if I could continue to practice VFR traffic pattern lndgs and takeoffs using the existing clearance code, and was approved to continue.
