squawk 7700

Recommended Posts

Hi to everybody,a litte question only. I use rcv4.1 and fspassenger always together. During a flight I had a flame out of one engine (flying a Fokker 70), decleared an emergency, changed the squawk to 7700 (as requested in fspassenger) but "radar contact" wanted me to switch back to the squawk issused at beginning of the flight. The whole flight back to the starting airport, untill I landed. And there were no other announcments, only the request to switch back to the old squawk.What was my mistake? Any idea?Greetings from germanyAir Merlin

Hi,If you have an emergency then there is an option in the RC menu to declare one. However, you must stay on the same transponder code unless RC orders you to change it.Once you've declared an emergency to RC you will be asked for your intentions. RC will then issue appropriate instructions.If you have two programs running that cause a conflict in situations such asa this you should really only run one of them.It's possible in the future that a change of transponder code may declare an emergency to RC. That's one for JD.Cheers,
