The current release of an airport ATIS is designated using an identifier. This identifier starts with ALPHA and is increased every time a regular update occurs or the ATIS is changed otherwise (f.e. due to rapid weather changes or runway closures). By reporting "we have ALPHA" the pilot indicates that he has taken notice of the ATIS with this identifier. If f.E. BRAVO got active in the meantime the controller will advise him to "check BRAVO".Yours,Martin Georg/EDDFVACC-SAG PR & Events Coordinator *** mailto:sag11@vacc-sag.orghttp://www.ewgva.de/ewgva/images/ConventionSignature.jpg
