Flight Crew Human Performance
We were on IFR flight plan from ozw to mco at 17000 ft. Took handoff from ZTL to ZJX and checked in. Next handoff from jax to jax and checked in, but apparently we were listening to a tpa approach frequency. After reaching a point where we expected to let down, we called the controller we were listening to and he didn't know who we were. He suggested orl approach frequency. We called her, she gave us a descent and we landed at mco without further incident. We were told to call ZJX, did so, and found out that they had been trying to call us for 1/2 hour on all frequencys and had scrambled F16's to look us over because of proximity to disney world. In future, we will monitor 121.5.
