Vatsim: Am I doing it right?

Recommended Posts

I decided I wanted to try Vatsim out for the first time recently. I downloaded Fsinn and whatever the other thing is, installed them both and watched a how-to on youtube to get things going. However, I started everything up, positioned myself at Dulles for a flight to Orlando, but the only frequency that came up and was audible was NY center. I tried a couple days later; started a flight at Montreal, loaded up Fsinn, but same thing - NY center was the only frequency.

 

Is it possible I did something wrong or is this normal?

If you mean when you click the atc button the only frequency popping up is ny center then that is because that is the only frequency online in your range. Many positions may not be staffed where you are. The best way to figure out where there is available ATC is to use Vatspy which will give you a map for the world and show you where there is atc currently available. During the evenings a lot more controllers are online. Also, various ARTCCs will have weekly or special events where they will be online at specific times for sure.
