I would agree with Underneath The Radar. 126.7 for all airstrips without a published CTAF frequency.

Although they really need to give each aerodrome a discrete frequency, it gets stupidly busy at times to the point that someone in the circuit you are joining can't be heard, only because other traffic miles away are transmitting.

The calls certainly should be made no matter how small the strip. All too often I go into smaller strips only to find an aircraft in the circuit not making a single call. Or even better, a glider who ignored my inbound call recently and he was climbing in a thermal ON my inbound track and didn't respond or make a single call after I made 3 inbound calls- and I had to turn to avoid ... Turns out he had a serviceable radio, heard my calls but just didn't know where he was.
