How do I listen to ATC frequencies?
Most scanners pick up the entirety of the aircraft band. You can also listen to air traffic control facilities from around the world at websites including liveatc.net, globalair.com, airnav.com and radioreference.com.
When should I switch to tower frequency?
this only applies when you’ve taxied to the hold-short with Ground. If Ground tells you to switch earlier, do it. If you want to switch earlier, request it. This seems to suggest that it is OK to switch to tower once you have completed the runup and are ready to takeoff at least in the US.
When should you contact a tower?
When operating within a Class B, Class C, and Class D surface area, a pilot intending to make a low approach should contact the tower for approval.

The underline means no voice is transmitted on 116.9, so if you were contacting Flight Service, you couldn’t hear them on this frequency.
Is it illegal to listen to UK ATC?

Why do planes circle after takeoff?
Answer: The maneuver you describe is usually either a 360 degree turn issued by the air traffic controller to increase spacing between your flight and another airplane, or it was one turn in a holding pattern. The one turn in a holding can occur when the expected hold time is reduced, requiring only a single turn.
