Is it possible to access Radio messages?

Recommended Posts

HiI would really like to be able to access the radio messages that I've received from ATC - kind of like when you click on the Messages icon on the kneeboard, and all the messages from your flight are there. But I can find no way of doing it through simconnect. I thought maybe the messages might all be available through some kind of string (or array of strings) object, but I've had no luck finding any reference to it.I have discovered that all the radio messages are stored in the .flt file when you save a flight ... in this format:RadioMsg0="Johannesburg Clearance Delivery, Boeing N737W ready to copy IFR clearance to Cape Town."RadioMsgKind0=2RadioMsg1="Boeing N737W, is cleared to Cape Town airport as filed. Fly runway heading, climb and maintain 14,000. Departure frequency is 124.5, squawk 1054."RadioMsgKind1=1And so on ...Does anyone have any ideas about how I might be able to access this information through simconnect? I guess I could always trigger an automatic save of the flight every couple of seconds, and then read the .flt file in my code but that would probably affect the user experience negatively!:DMany thanks.

I am hopeful for the future, but I've no idea when. I wanted to be able to do things like divert them to another PC, or to a program for processing, possibly incorporating them in a third party ATC program like Radar Contact.Pete

Thanks PeteI look forward to Microsoft implementing this. I would like a small app I'm working on to be able to respond to ATC commands. It would be particularly useful on those long haul flights where all that happens is a change of frequency every half an hour ... I've got the app to fly the plane, but the simple process of "hearing" ATC has proved to be a problem.Thanks for your response.David
