Why do air traffic controllers and pilots never say the third number after the decimal? I.e. they say "Contact Detroit approach on 124.97." when the freq is actually 124.975. Are they really in such a hurry they can't spend another second saying the last number? Or do their radios have different numbering schemes that prevent them from adding the third number?
