Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK elevation: 303 feet) with a long-standing glider club on the field recently began tower operations. After the tower had been operating for about a week, on a relatively busy Saturday afternoon, I heard this exchange:Glider:"Frederick Tower, Glider XXX at 1,600 feet inbound for a right downwind for landing runway 12 with information Sierra...."Tower:"Glider XXX, Frederick Tower. Hold your altitude. I have a few ahead of you."Glider:"Frederick Tower, I'm a glider."Tower:"Glider XXX, cleared to land, runway 12."Lance Nuckollsvia e-mail
