    Re: External Radio App?

    Thanks for the quick replies guys! Sorry for not clarifying...
    I'm looking for software that would run on the same PC as the Project Magenta
    software. Eddie mentioned that you can change frequencies with the CDU,
    but I'm only aware of NAV frequencies being selectable, not COM, ADF, XPDR,
    etc...
    - Enrico, I guess either typing or mouse scroll wheel, depending on what the
    front end looked like. I could see having a page in the CDU/FMC to type in
    the frequencies and having the LSK's display what radio would get the typed
    in frequency, however I don't know how accurate this would be. I know that
    you can select between manual and autotune throuth the B744 FMC, but
    again, it's only NAV frequencies. Another option I could see would be with the
    RJ software, the radio frequency panel that displays the radio information
    might be selectable and tunable. Finally, maybe even a stand alone app that
    would replicate the appropriate panel models for the appropriate aircraft,
    ie. the Boeing B737NG comm panel would be a small radio stack that would
    take on the appearance of the actual panels in the cockpit, like what you've
    done with the MCP and CDU. You could offer a Boeing set, and Airbus set and
    a Regional Jet set. I know that you have the radio stack represented with
    the General Aviation product, so that wouldn't neccessarily need to be
    done.

    I don't know, maybe I'm crazy and the only one that would use such a
    thing...

    Thanks for humoring me and if you would like any help in the graphics
    department, let me know. I'd be happy to donate my time if you think this would be
    worth pursuing.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    There is a setting in the CDU.INI file for that. Let me know whether that
    suffices.

    Nothing (nearly nothing) is crazy when it comes to these things.

    And... something like this could be even done with pmSystems and then
    customized as one needs it.

    Ah yes, I missed the CDU.ini file. That will work perfectly, thanks guys!

    Cheers,
    Jim

    P.S. The only thing for the future would be to add a COM2 LSK option since
    Squawkbox 3 will allow users to use both COM frequencies.

    Would be great to see thje COM2 option , as the new excellent officially
    realised Ivao client IvAp is giving the option too.

    Btw and this is for Peter, would it be possible to activate the send button

    of the Teamspeeach program on the client pc directly? As with the new IvAp

    program no Roger Wilco is involved anymore.

    Many thanks

    Michel

    Haven't they yet supported the same mechanism as Roger Wilco and AVC?

    I think someone looked at how to do it for TeamSpeak and said it was very
    complicated. I'm not really wanting to go that far for a specific program. I
    thought someone was going to sort it out, but I've heard no details.
    Sorry.

    The common method for RW and AVC is by a pair of Registered Messages, one for
    PTT on and the other for PTT off. It's about two or three lines of code
    for the author of the voice program. That's the way it should be done. That
    was done for AVC because at the time, not so long ago, everyone started
    changing from RW to AVC.

    Regards,

    Pete

    Hi Peter,
    Okay will check out.
    AVC is exclusive used for Vatsim operations and Teamspeech in used exclusive

    for IVAO.

    Hi,

    consider it done... but I thought you were a purist and there are no such
    entries in the NAV/RAD page?

    Hi Enrico

    You got me

    At this moment I don't have my hardware radiopanels working, so I'm relaying

    on PM for this moment to fly already in this stage online. Maybe it better
    to put them as an alternate in the ini file, because it can be useful for
    persons who, don't have a cockpitproject as me, too.

    But you are 100% right, I'm asking this time a figure which isn't there in
    real life (my biggest sorry )

    Many thanks

    Michel

    Hello Michel,

    I was just pulling your leg.

    But I did remember you once asked me why I put things in the software that
    are not there in the real thing, and in other cases people simply want or
    need it. That is why I do it.

    Ciao

    Enrico
