Can it really do this? The underlying The undelying FS process may not permit it. The default method involves parseing a string and playing a sound for each character. What Kreg wants would requiring parsing the string in pairs of characters and playing a sound for each pair. It would have to distinguish between letters and numbers, cope with 11 - 19 as special cases, as well as dealing strings with an odd number of numbers. I'm not saying it can't be done; just doubting its practicality and would like to know if anyone has done it.

What I would do is create a custom callsign "UPS twenty-five nintety-two heavy" if it meant that much to me ;)

Hi,As Ed says, a custom call sign is the only way. We had this correct way back in FS98 (ProFlight98), and MS couldn't be bothered to make it work correctly in FS2002. Didn't fix it in FS2004 and didn't fix it in FSX...--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

I used the UPS one as it is the only "heavy" that flies where I live. I'll have to see when I get some more time :S
