ATC Responses Disappearing. Glitch?

Recommended Posts

My ATC responses are missing sometimes. It happens about once every 15 minutes, but I really screws everything up. I am unable to respond and my IFR gets cancelled, or I have to save and quit and then reload to get my responses back.What can I do?Is this a known glitch?

There are a couple of known problems in this area although they usually don't happen as often as your issue (every 15 minutes).1. If the controller gives you a command and you see the responces in the ATC window but pressing 1, 2, etc. does not send a responce, then click your mouse anywhere in the ATC window and try again. In this case the ATC window is just losing focus.2. If the controller gives you a command but you see a blank ATC window (no responces listed), then try changing the COM 1 frequency. When you do, the ATC window will display "Change Frequency to xxx.x" or some similar wording and when you reset COM 1 to the correct frequency, your ATC window will display the normal responce list and operations will return to normal, sometimes. I do not know what causes this second problem and some folks have said that the recovery method listed above does not always work. It works for me, try it and see.R-

Ah. Glad I'm not the only one who sees this happen. I will try to change the frequency and see if the option to switch it back appears.To clarify, I am having the 2nd problem you guys mentioned, where there are no responses listed.Thanks. I'll let you know if that works for me.

This glitch is mainly a problem if you change the ATC window display settings. If you leave them on the default settings there is often no issue.Cheers,Noel.
