How do I give the King Air standby frequencies- I've tried the Baron Radios.

Recommended Posts

Guest stratmatt777

The King Air is unflyable for IFR since it does not have standby Nav (or Com) frequencies. How do I add them?I went into the panel cfg file and gave the King Air the Baron's radio stack with standby frequencies, but when I adjust Nav frequency it adjusts the primary (in use) nav frequency instead of adjusting the standby frequency!The Baron is too slow so I am using the 737 until I can get this figured out.Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!thanks!

You will need to edit the aircraft.cfg file to enable "standby" since the default a/c only had single channel radios.[Radios]// Radio Type = availiable, standby frequency, has glide slopeAudio.1 = 1Com.1 = 1, 0Com.2 = 1, 0Nav.1 = 1, 0, 1Nav.2 = 1, 0, 0Adf.1 = 1Transponder.1 = 1Marker.1 = 1Change the zeros to ones for those radios that have standby frequency channels available.

Thank you SO MUCH, Bill!!!!This really helps me a lot! I need to use the King Air to practice my instrument flying to make sure it is totally perfect prior to applying for an airline job- and the Baron is too slow.I wonder why MS didn't make this easy and simple upgrade to the King Air themselves? I guess they wouldn't have any awareness of the problem if they never practice realistic instrument flying with the king air- they are too busy writing code perhaps... :)Thanks for taking a few minutes to help me so much!>You will need to edit the aircraft.cfg file to enable>"standby" since the default a/c only had single channel>radios.>>[Radios]>// Radio Type = availiable, standby>frequency, has glide slope>Audio.1 = 1>Com.1 = 1, 0>Com.2 = 1, 0>Nav.1 = 1, 0, 1>Nav.2 = 1, 0, 0>Adf.1 = 1>Transponder.1 = 1>Marker.1 = 1>>Change the zeros to ones for those radios that have standby>frequency channels available.
