Maybe something like a clearance recorder utility would do it? It could record incoming radio transmissions and you could hit a button to play them back when you need them.

There is a good kneeboard in VR in DCS. It would be awesome if it had a page in it that could accept dynamic input. Maybe text that could go along with the voice transmission.

Ironically, a physical kneepad would work best, I would think. When sitting, you can see through the nose of the bridge, no?

An auto cut-n-paste would be nice though.

Or an auto kneeboard that keeps track of 9 Line's automatically.

I think that would work best in VR.

You just hit the bullseye.

That's exactly what the Aviation Industry needs in real life. With all the computer technology out there, the governent and public transportation electronic infrastructure is absolutely horrible in comparison.

All official airways voice communications at the ATC ground facility that are currently archived, yes archived, because they aren't accessible in real-time by the operators, they can't play back any of the stuff at moments notice, only the investigators when they open archive they can access it, so it's all offline storage. You could do the same thing on the airplane, in addition to a black box, you would have a "COMMS BUFFER" where you would be able to go 24 hours back and replay the comms, browse by frequency, etc, the airplane would simply have less storage available because it has space/cost/energy constraints, this kind of a think can probably be an addon, it would just plug in whatever outputs those radios have, or a splitter in the middle before it goes to the headphone, however the method of just dumping aduio would be limited to the frequency being set at the time that's output to that port, and you wouldn't be able to search by frequency or anything else, only time.

There is also oppositon to going to digital, they want to keep analog signals for a number of reasons which I don't remember now. In analog only one person can talk at one time on one frequency, otherwise things get blocked as we know, which can be deadly and I think did lead to real disasters.
With digital, all the involved get their own voice channel, and the ATC/radio system could record everything on the whole AirVoice band if necessary, then the ATC/pilots would have a control panel selecting which freqs/voice-channels they would be actively listening, let's say I want to have frequency 135.5 in left ear, and frequency 134.7 in right ear, and that pilot from Cessna AB460 was annoying so that's let's just mute that voice-channel that's on 134.7, and with the live recording/buffering and replaying feature, they would be able to go back and isolate the voice-channel from everything else (Solo Mode) and hear it clearly this time around.

This may be very helpful in some kind of emergencies, but most importantly for investigators, if the comms reached the ATC ground station, incase blackbox and bufferbox are destroyed.

What is the FAA doing anyway.

Many of the new audio panels coming out, even for GA aircraft have an automatic clearance recorder built into them. I've installed a few of those, and playing back a radio transmission is as easy as pushing a button on the yoke.

To overcome the radio congestion problem, there's CPDLC, which is already being mandated for aircraft that want to fly in certain areas. Just finally got some exposure to it with a class I took for the Honeywell Primus 2000 system in the Falcon 900 aircraft. Pretty cool stuff.

Here's an article for anybody who wants to read a little bit about what it is.

Many marine radios also have last message playback. I know I had a Cobra marine set with this feature maybe 8 years ago.
