I don't either. I've noticed some RAs don't work in FS9 on occasion, even a "rotate" once.Btw, you need to post your name on each message, per forum rules. ThanksChris

Hi (roarkv?) Please sign with you real name next time (forum rule)...I think the altitude callout for 2500 feet radio altimeter depends on the situation when it comes on. If you are recieving an ILS and within a certain vertical speed limit you won't hear this callout.It comes on when you approaching the terrain to fast to warn you that the radio altimeter is alive or if you fly a LOC or DME approach where you have no vertical reference beside the VNAV profile. (For example if you altimeter is set wrong your descent profile is wrong to!)I hope this helps you a bit...CheersMartin

Hi ArjanStupid question but have you entered the Vref speeds for V1,Vr,V2? If yes, what sound card are you using and have you ever experienced any other problems with the sound under FS9 or FS2002?CheersMartin

I'm not sure that's true, Martin. AFAIK, the 2,500 feet call is a call just like any other altitude call outs.Prior to SU2 there were some problems with the GPWS where around 2,500 feet you'd get a terrain warning, even when you weren't even remotely going to crash, but that's a different type of warning. The 2,500 feet call out should always be there. There was a thread about this perhaps 2 weeks ago, but unfortunately it hasn't been pinned down yet.Leo Bakker

"I think the altitude callout for 2500 feet radio altimeter depends on the situation when it comes on. If you are recieving an ILS and within a certain vertical speed limit you won't hear this callout."I'm with Leo on this one, Martin. 2500' is just a regular radio altimeter type callout. However, other height callouts below this may be (optionally) related to barometric height above the airfield. Also, some height callouts may only be heard if the aircraft is not on the glidepath. Frustratingly, the various Boeing Maintenance Manuals don't always tell you which heights these are.Hope this helps.Cheers.Ian.
