Weather radio

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a weather radio gauge and can't seem to find a way to read the current COM weather frequency. Is there any way to do this in either C++ or XML?Rob

In FS there is no 'weather frequency'. If you know the frequency of an ATIS or other automated weather system you can tune the COM radio to it.. but there is no separate 'weather frequency'.

Actually, the list of nearby frequencies is what I was looking for. I know the GPS gets that list in XML. I am just wanting to get all of the local ASOS channels.Any ideas?Rob

The problem is that the frequencies are sorted by airport.I suppose you could do a lookup for the nearest airports, then request the list of frequencies used, then parse the list looking for ASOS to obtain the specific frequency.If you look through the G500 code long enough, you should be able to deconstruct the methods used.
