Default No 'Receive Mode' in Mig-21?

Just tried Mig-21 online and discovered there's no 'receive mode' control to filter out the AWACS spam on the radio.

Any chance we could get one in a future update?

Indeed, I'm quite sure there are no plans for that. The receive mode switch on the FC3 aircraft is a bit of a workaround for them not having properly operable radios and thus you'd have to hear every single radio transmission on the whole map.
Either switch the channel, as QuiGon suggested, or switch off the radio entirely when you need some peace and quiet.

And yes, I realise that on an AWACS or GCI frequency, especially online, there is a lot of chatter and it can actually get a little strenuous to just figure out which information is meant for you, but that's what good old radio is like.

Ahhh....I didn't realise it was an FC3-only thing.

Makes sense, thanks chaps.

So the decision is - do I turn off the radio or accidentally shoot down my AWACS?

I would recommend to just turn off the radio or switch channel. Shooting down friendlies is a bad option, especially in MP where you can get banned for that.
Or even better: Keep it on, listen to the calls and get some easy kills in the process
