There is no “correct ATS frequency” for VFR aircraft in class G airspace.
VFR aircraft wants to listen out for VFR and IFR broadcasts in his area - what frequency does he listen to?

VFR aircraft requires assistance from ATS for an in-flight emergency - what frequency does he transmit on?

VFR wants information (nav, met, PRD) from ATS for whatever reason - what frequency does he transmit on?

ATS wants to broadcast to a radar observed VFR about to enter a restricted area or CTA - what frequency does she hope the VFR is on?

ATS observes 2 aircraft about to come together in Class G with no avoiding action apparent and broadcasts a traffic alert - what frequency does she hope the VFR is on?

ATS broadcasts a hazard alert for an aerodrome in her airspace, what frequency should a nearby VFR be on to hear it?

VFR PJE aircraft wants to conduct a drop in Class G, what frequency does he broadcast on?

ATS broadcasts an LJR - what frequency does she hope the VFR is on?

BIK_116.80, if you can demonstrate that it is of no consequence what frequency the VFR is on for each and every one of these scenarios, then you would be right in saying that there is no correct ATS frequency. If you can't, then you are wrong.
