Default Gospadin's Nav Kneeboard

Post was previously in the 1.x forum which has been set read-only, so reposting here.
Old Link: http://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?...72&postcount=1

Just wanted to share with everyone the navigation kneeboard I made for DCS.

It's intended to compress as much critical navigation information as possible into 2/3 pages, with consistent information positioning and light color coding, to help getting the information you need at a glance.

It contains data for the A-10C, UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, L-39C, F-86F, MiG-21bis, and MiG-15bis, including important inner/outer NDB, VOR, RSBN, PRMG, ILS, and TACAN beacons, along with runway data and secondary/weather-triggered beacon qualifiers. It also separately identifies ED's RSBN/PRMG from Leatherneck's version.

If anyone has suggestions, feedback, or notices issues, I'm definitely interested.

The file (in PDF format plus pre-generated .png files) is located here:
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...files/1523987/

and I recommend using the Kneeboard Builder application (http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=129341) to install it.

thanks!

Attached is a temporary version of the Nevada page to match the 2.0.4 NTTR release.

It adds VORTAC radial information from airnav, and fixes a few bits of runway information.

Note that with the frequency changes, no airplane defaults to usable frequencies in NTTR so I've zero'd them out. When the module creators update their defaults, I'll update the channel IDs.

Awesome! Just what I was looking for, going into the IFR side of things.

Perfect. Thank you.

Just one (maybe stupid) question: Is VORTAC as similar as TACAN?
Small example: Can I enter 94X as TACAN frequency to find my direction to Beatty Airport?

Edit:
Found it out myself VORTAC = VOR + TACAN so it must be possible to use 94X as TACAN to find direction to Beatty Airport

VORTAC is a co-located VOR + TACAN station, for both civilian and military usage.

The DME for both systems is the same.

As such, both civilian and military planes can navigate from VORTACs.

Still missing some Nevada frequencies
