This recording is from the KDFW Reg Dep (West) recording from 3/1/21, 2230 UT.  It starts at about 224951Z.  Timeline:
~224955 - Controller directs "AA2391" to turn left "direct to JASPA".  This message is apparently intended for AA2891, which is about 14 miles west of the airport.  However, it is acknowledged by AA2308, which has just taken off from DFW.  AA2308 responds by pulling a full 180 degree turn, which places it in the West downwind for DFW arrivals.  AA2308 proceeds to climb behind AA380, an arrival from Seoul.  AA2308 also follows directions (intended for AA2891) to contact the Center, putting it on a different channel.
~225051 - Controller tries to contact AA2308, "American 2308, I don't know where you're heading right now, fly a heading of 270, maintain 10 thousand..."  The controller continues to attempt to contact AA2308.
~225154 - AA2308 is just under 1/2 mile behind AA380, and just under 1000 feet below.  Fortunately, AA2308 follows earlier directions to climb only to 10k ft, and levels off.  About this time, AA2308 finally responds to the directions to turn to 270 degrees, sharply turning right.
~225200 - AA2308 reestablishes contact, asking for the frequency.
~225426 - Controller tells AA2308 to go direct to JASPA, but requests that they remain on this frequency.
~225636 - A new controller tells AA2308 to contact Fort Worth Center.

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (CBS12) — A pilot of a small plane and his 4-year-old son made an emergency landing in St. Lucie County after the engine on their small plane sputtered in mid-air.

The St. Lucie County Fire District said the plane landed near Glades Cutoff Road and NW Delcris Drive just after 11 a.m. on Monday. This is just southeast of I-95 and W. Midway Road near White City.

"About 15 minutes or so after we took off, we had some engine issues," said Adam Williams, the pilot who had to make the emergency landing Monday morning.

Williams and his son were flying above 2,200 feet in the sky at the time of the incident.

"When we started to go down and started turning, he realized something wasn’t quite right," said Williams, as he described his son's reaction. "So as I was talking to the tower controller, he grabbed my arm said 'daddy, daddy' and I can tell he was concerned." "There’s a shock factor that you experience as a pilot if something goes the wrong way," said Williams. "And it usually takes about 4 or 5 seconds for that 'oh crap moment' to hit you. You realize it and start making moves. And then I went back to my training. You have a couple of things that you do. You fly at a good speed, you find a good place to land. You do a checklist."  Pilot Adam Williams told Port St. Lucie Police the engine on his Cessna 140 sputtered then stopped at about 2,200 feet in the air.

Williams said the road appeared to be the best landing spot.

Williams was on his way to Boca Raton.

No one was hurt.

Williams, according to police, has been a pilot for nine years and runs his own flight school.

The Toronto Center (Barrie) feed lists only the "Toronto Center (Barrie Sector, East High), 134.575" frequency.
However, listening today, I discovered that it also has 121.225.  This frequency is listed in the (Currently Down) Toronto Center (Timmins) feed as "Toronto Center (North Bay High Sector), 121.225"

Proof of this can be found by listening to the Toronto Center (Barrie) Archive on 2021-08-03 from 0530Z to 0600Z.  Starting just before 31 minutes (i.e. at the very end), the controller can be heard switching EVA 031 over to his "other frequency".  (Note that EVA 031 incorrectly reads it back as 131.225 the second time).  It's clear that the frequency was actually switched, as the audio quality of EVA 031 is significantly better when he reads back the frequency the second time.

Can the listing for the "Toronto Center (Barrie)" feed be updated to include "Toronto Center (North Bay High Sector), 121.225"?
Also, is there any way for someone to check/ask how many other frequencies are included in the "Toronto Center (Barrie)" feed that are currently unlisted?  "Toronto Center (Timmins)" has a fair number of frequencies on it, and it's unfortunate that it's down as many of those frequencies would be nice to have access to.  (Maybe we have access to them through "Barrie" but we just don't know it as it isn't listed.)

Noticed that too. We were holding for a long time taking off from Tampa back on July 14, and I didn't have my radio with me, so was curious what we had been waiting for at the time. I agree. Midway is awesome. I live about 35 or so miles from it.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/pilot-spots-possible-jetpack-man-5000-feet-in-the-air/ar-AAMIHnF?li=BBnb7Kz

A sighting said to be a man in a jetpack flying some 5,000 feet in the sky 15 miles away from Los Angeles International Airport occurred Wednesday.

There were a number of similar sightings in 2020 that sparked rumors about the mysterious man, dubbed "jetpack man," and prompted an FBI investigation into the phenomenon.

A Boeing 747 pilot reported seeing an object that might have resembled a jet pack 15 miles east of LAX at 5,000 feet altitude,” said a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson in a statement. “Out of an abundance of caution, air traffic controllers alerted other pilots in the vicinity.”

A conversation between a pilot and air traffic personnel about the sighting was recorded.

"Skywest 3626, use caution. The jet man is back. Let me know if you see him," Air traffic control told the pilot. "Skywest 3626, did you see the UFO?"

"We were looking, but we did not see Iron Man," the pilot replied.A jetpack man was previously spotted at a training area near Palos Verdes at about 3,000 feet. Weeks later, he was spotted again near the Los Angeles International Airport, flying at roughly 6,000 feet.

The sightings are unlikely to be a man with a jetpack thousands of feet in the air, according to an FBI report.
