hearing some constant ATIS

Recommended Posts

hi allrecently discovered that while approaching 2 serparate airports i start receiving a constant ATIS signal. the 2 airports are KOKV in Winchester Virginia and KSLS in Salinas CA. actually in Winchester's case, its their AWOS report. no matter what frequency i turn to the ATIS stays on.....and gets pretty annoying. after moving away from the vicinity, it goes off.i know this wasn't always the case because i regularly fly into KSFO which is near KSLS in FS and never heard it until recently.has anyone else experienced this, or now how to fix it?thxchris

Hi Chris,After some research (Salinas Muni is KSNS not KSLS), I noticed that KSNS ATIS and KOKV AWOS share a common frequency (124.85). It would seem that your Com2 radio is tuned to 124.85 and that your audio panel is configured with Com1 set to ON and Both set to ON.It is possible that the airplane that you are flying has an instrument panel that displays neither the Com2 receiver/transmitter nor the audio panel. If that's the case, change planes long enough to disable the "Both" function and your problem will be solved. R-

Ron...i'll bet your right. as i was reading your response, i realized that i had downloaded and used the mobile control tower available here. i had set the com radio switch to "both" to listen to both a tower and ground freq recently.thanks for the suggestion! i'm going to check it out now....chris
