Accidental Activation Activates Fighter Jet Escort

Apparently there is a particular communication channel airlines use when they have been hijacked. This afternoon, an American Airlines flight was escorted by fighter jets to Miami when the channel was set on a flight from Puerto Rico.

This interface error sounds expensive. Can we assume the flight crew did not know they were using this frequency?
