Got to thinking, maybe a radar anomaly that causes aircraft crashes would be interesting. Feedback time!

Too similar to SCP-1558 for me. Also, it comes off as too "generic spooky thing with obvious explanation".
Well, what's the obvious explanation then?
"Ghost plane" is pretty obvious. :D
Admittedly, I'm more bothered by the 1558 similarities. "An anomalous broadcast that causes people to inadvertently kill others through accidents in an attempt to save a life that's not actually at risk" applies to both. I'm not accusing the author of plagiarism, of course, but they're just too similar for me to upvote.
I don't know about anyone else, but the sentence "directing 125.500 MHz frequency waves (Aviation Emergency Channel)" is irritating to me. I think it would be better if it were just "message on the Aviation Emergency Channel" or something similar. Overall this is a kind of bland idea, although I think it has some potential. No vote for now.
A decent take on a 'ghost plane' phenomenon, though I agree that the implied number of crashes caused due to this seems high - given the number of deaths is triple-digit and the number of crashes double-digit, can we assume that this thing is bringing down passenger jets?
Yeah, that was my idea with it. I had it set in the triple digits, but that was wayy to high.
