Switch to a discrete frequency? ATC can't just invent a frequency. How about 121.5 mHz? You know, the International Distress Frequency? Perhaps the air traffic controller didn't even have that frequency at his/her disposal. "Silence, Mayday" could have been imposed, where all non-essential traffic shut up. Clearly these ideas have become obsolete.
