Hello captains

 

I am currently flying in my 6 on vatsim. I want to type messages in the Vpilot box but it keeps saying; NOT TRANSMITTING ON ANY FREQUENCIES!

I have my radio's on the 122.8 but I am not transmitting. Looking in my 6 for the problem I see the MASTER RADIO circuit breakers off (DOWN).

I try to clivck them but none is working. Is that because the are from the old radio's?

 

Now I think that my mic is switched off, is that simulated in the 6?

Regards Ronald van Ingen

Probably, the new radios are retrofit so doubtful they'll have a circuit breaker.

Possibly. The panel is on the captain's side, bottom left behind the yoke above the left rudder pedal.

Do you mean the switch box under the transponder box?

 

I now have recieved both, transmitting COM1, still nothing

Yes that one. If that doesn't change anything for you then I'm out of ideas because I don't use Vpilot. Hopefully someone else can chip in here and help you out, if not you might have to open a support ticket.

Thanks for the help.

 

Maybe it is an Vpilot issue, Yesterday everything was working fine!

I figured it out

 

My BATT & GND.PWR switch must be turned on....!!???

Well yes that makes sense since it's your battery switch. Not going to get any radios with the battery off.

The battery switch is on!

but if you want to transmit on Vatsim I need to have both on during flight. I know it is strange, but very true!

I think you're misinterpreting the function of the one switch.

One is a battery on/off. The other simply switches between the source of external power and the aircraft's battery.

I know the function

 That is how I noticed what was wrong. Before engine start and everything I could transmit via Vpilot to vatsim.

After engine start I put the generators on, the upper switch to BATT and the lower to OFF which is the correct way to do so.

As soon as I switch the lower to off I could not transmit on vatsim via Vpilot.

So I need to have the lower switch on and the upper also!

I believe you are mis configuring the airplane...

As per what you are writing you are putting

the Plane battery Ground power switch to Battery CORRECT and

the Battery and Ground Power Switch to OFF which is not correct. Checklist says to put it to ON ie upper position when enter the aircraft and do not touch it again.

 

By putting it to OFF at low RPM since the engine gens have not kicked it you are going to loss a bunch of instruments and gauges. I tested and indeed with that switch to OFF even with high RPM vpilot behaves as you wrote, but again putting it to OFF is not proper procedure.

oke, so the lower switch is for pwr on/of and the upper for GND or BATT?
