Ciribob, I will send you a doc later but as a summary for the FC3 and Gazelle:

A-10A and F-15, radio selector and PTT combined, like the A-10C
Russian birds, radio selector (SPU system) independent of the PTT. Like the KA-50 or the Hip.
Gazelle: radio selector like the Huey and PTT in the trigger: 1st detent intercom, 2nd detent radio. Like in the Huey.

109, 190 and 29, one radio.

Edit: in the 1.5.4, the M-2000C has a working "select radio and Talk switch" so it can be redone like the A-10C in the next update of the SR like you said. Their EDM model has the new throttle model (RDI model) and a number of new connectors for the HOTAS hats and switches, not linked yet to the LUAs.

Ciribob the only other "issue" we noticed was the audio was quite low. My partner and I both had to turn up our PC volumes and reduce the in game levels to make it work. Not sure if this is something that can be adjusted and not a complaint. Just letting you know our thoughts.

Fix the PTT issue, add Secure voice and Online Gaming will be dramaticlly different.

Nice Work

If you'd like to help with this project, please help me fill in this sheet of radio info! It'll also help correct any mistakes I've made with the Radios.

I need your help!

LINK: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=1869108790

Once I know all the power and gain values I can then start on the Distance Limitations but I can't do it without the data.

Feel free to copy and post links to edits or post below and I'll update. I'll also add to the original post
AN/ARC-27
225 to 399.9

Power 9 Watts

Many other radios in there as well, look to Page 11 for the AN/ARC-27

Cheers

Rob

For secure voice, is there any documentation on it? I assume if your codes match youre all good otherwise you hear a garbled mess?

For the volume issue, try dragging the slider to the right on the connection window. It'll boost your mic volume. Might help!

Thanks for all the links guys, I'll update the document later tonight. I really appreciate it!

I might try and do a release tonight as well adding optional modifiers to hotkeys, the new improved server admin window and the radio switch ptt. If I run out of time, then tomorrow!

With regard to the audio issue, we both had to turn our mic gain all the way DOWN for our transmissions to be clear / un garbled. It's definately a subjective issue. (I have about 7000 hours flying tankers so my hearing my not be the best reference point) I'll play with it a little more tonight when I get home. Like I said, far from a show stopper.

Look for a PM regarding the secure voice.

Mind A-10C defaults to 0 volume in the pit when you join, Beamrider. There's artifical secure comms in that its seperated from RED/BLUE anyway, not sure if any other implementation will achieve anything better.

Switching the radio "in focus" is quite a tricky event at speed. The airframes all have different ways of achieving it. I'm struggling to believe in the real world they do as much channel dancing as I've done. I'm tempted to ask for simplifications like either one button PTT and one for rotating through the radios or just three PTT's rather than the four we need right now. Buit open to thoughts on that.

The big difference between realistic secure comms, such as in Aries and UR and only hearing your coalition is that with realistic secure comms you can only secure certain radios and certain frequencies (normally only a single radio) and everyone can still hear that you're transmitting, they just can hear what you're saying unless they have the right key (they just hear static).

So in short a coalition based system is far too good in a sense. For example, even if you can't hear what's being said, you can still transmit on the same frequency and either spoof others (they will hear you fine) or jam comms by saturating the frequency.
