Anyone know how to enable Navaid morse IDs (VOR, DME etc) to sound output on Avsom's F-100 please ?I can change the frequencies no problem but can't find any way to get sound outputs from the Navaid frequencies.Can this be done?

Thanks for your reply - appreciate your trying to help but no, enabling sound of morse IDs of navaids works normally on Boeings, Lear etc by mouse clicking on the navaid itself. The F-100 radios are different. They are opened by clicking on the power controls when they show up below the throttles etc. I have done a printscreen and have tried to upload the picture to show you but for some reason it won't embed in this reply.Any further thoughts please?Thank you.

I downloaded the Project Fokker F-70's and F-100's and had a look. You're right, no audio panel, but we can easily add one with FS Panel Studio. I would recommend putting it on the radio stack window, sacrificing one of the digital altimeter readouts. It'll look like the pic attached here, in the zip file. The modified panel.cfg and radio stack bitmap files are enclosed here in the attached zip file. Back up the original files first, then just copy and paste the panel.cfg file from the attached zip file into the PF10070v2_panel folder in the main FS 2004 AIRCRAFT folder. Select YES to overwrite the original. Copy and paste the PF10070-pedestal-day bitmap from the attached zip file into each of the 3 remaining PF10070v2_panel folders, one in each different aircraft model. I wasn't sure which panel folder PF uses, probably the one in the main FS 2004 folder, so I chose to modify all of them! Again select YES to overwrite the original bitmap. That should do it. I tested it with the Project Fokker 100 TAM livery at Innsbruck LOWI, tuning the NAV 1 radio to the localizer 28 approach frequency of 111.10. After 3-5 seconds, you will begin to hear the morse code.http://www.graphics-free.com/animations/tr...ges/plane_6.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MDhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/141872.ziphttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/141873.jpg

How is the radio stack accessed in the Project Fokker aircraft?! I can't find it anywhere. It's not visiable on the instrument panel and clicking on the radio stack icon brings up the pushback panel, not the radio stack. I don't see the radio stack listed in the View/Instruments menu ( or anywhere else for that matter) either! Flying these great looking planes is going to be rather difficult without the radio stack!

Scott,There IS no seperate radio panel.The radio freq. can be set at the bottom of the Pedestal, but you have to click the gauge On first for the freq. to be visible. (the top button of the 5-button block).By the way: there are some problems with toggling the NAV1, and with the setting of the ADF (see the PF10070 website).But I've made a new radio gauge, which I'll release in a short while.Rob
