Boeing 223 test flight working Boeing Seattle asking for a SELCAL check. Boeing 223 asked if the tests on VHF were ok. Boeing Seattle confirmed they were. That was the end of the conversation. I just checked and this was 237 km test flight from Moses Lake Grant County, Washington (MWH) to Everett, Washington (PAE)

Nice, the ldocs and testing stuff is way more interesting than the routine traffic, but somtimes the interesting stuff begins on one of the boring freqs and moves elsewhere.

"just checked and this was 237 km test flight... KMWH  to KPAE" what is the source of this?
 
The FlightAware Activity Log for BOE223 [Boeing 737 MAX 8] 29 Oct 2019 19:02z was KBFI to KGEG via the MOSES LAKE VOR/DME w/ a right turn at Ralston

Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" they're never posted nor ever used.

my source was FlightAware while the flight was in progress: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE223
This was the flight. They must have changed Everett to Boeing Field. When the flight was in progress it was heading to Everett, and a replay of the flight shows it going up to Everett before going to Boeing Field: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE223/history/20191029/1845Z/KMWH/KBFI

5.451 is another Boeing flight test frequency. I caught BOE223 on 123.425 before they switched to 11.306, it sounded like this:

Thanks for the added info, Matt. And it's getting weird that people I've met in real life are now posting here! :)
