Please sign your name in keeping with forum policy. Yes, you are right. I have the darndest time when I fly over Russian airspace with intersections that have the same name as the ICAO airport designator. The only way I can get it to work is a bit convoluted, but effective. I find the waypoint prior to the 4-letter intersection name and use that as the exit point from the current airway. I use the LEGS page and input the coordinates of the intersection as that waypoint, then use the next inetersection, do a direct to for the next waypoint that is used the as the entry to the airway again. So it goes something like this:G333 ANYPTDCT N3344.5E12345.6DCT NXTPTG432...........Its not pretty, but since the FMC will not take something like "UHHH" as an intersection, the above is a workable solution. The FMC doesn't seem to have a problem if the 4-letter intersection name is along the airway path. But does when it is the exit point from one airway and entry point to the next airway. Go figure...
