Default FM Freq Question.

In the MI-8 can you set a manual FM Freq, say a ground unit sets a homing beacon( I want to trigger a message in game to tune to xx freq for pick up). can you dial in the FM number like in the Huey. ex 42.50. I have looked all over and read the guide and cannot see how.I only see presets

"??" back at you, I guess, 'cause it's not quite clear what you're actually asking about. Is it about radio tuning, or setting up ground units comms correctly in the mission editor?

Manual tuning rotaries and "preset/manual" switch for R863 radio are located on central pedestal. No idea if that one can be used for contacting ground units, though, or if one has to use 828 or YaDRO instead. Never played with that feature of the module I admit.

Homing in the Mi-8 is done with ARC-UD in conjunction with R-828
Note that R-828 freqs are preset in Mission Editor then “selected” on the R-828 panel. No other way to dial freqs.
For procedures see the DCS Flight Manual (117-119, 126-129) and Chuck’s Manual (95-97).

You can use the ARK-9 to tune in on frequencies of 150KHz - 1300KHz(0.150MHz - 1.3MHz) and follow the needle. Manual 120 and following. I'm not sure if it's AM/FM or if it cares about them, it's a while since i used it. But you can set up an ground unit transmitting on this frequency and home in on it.

Hi all , thanks for relies. I think I should have worded ? better. I want to be able to have an A/C Be assigned mid flight to a TIC support call on FM like in the Huey. So you are flying along and you get a tasking on your 863. To contact a Unit in Contact say 138.000 and they tell you they are transmitting on 42.50 FM. how do you tune that in. It was not a Pre Brief. Or a Preset. It could be a unit outside of your AO but you are closest to respond.

If you’re asking how you “tune that in” with R-828, the answer is through the ME.
The only R-828 tuning you can do on the fly is with the Channel Selector.
So, you can create your scenario with up to 10 FM freq options.

Did you watch the vid I linked?

Hey ChiC

Yeah I saw it. But basically you cannot tune a freq while in the Air that is not a preset.

Not if you want to use the 42.50FM
