Personal Locator Beacon Sound


Recommended Posts

A quick question - how does Personal Locator Beacon that pilots use after ejection work? I understand it should be sending its signal to the satellite, but does it also emit a sound used later for ADF navigation (which, sadly, is not functional for A10C)?

 

I am asking, because I want to use the "transmit message" for specific zone that would emulate PLB in CSAR mission. Does anyone know what is the sound? A morse code? A repeated beep?

Thanks, I guess it would be quite accurate for the suite we have modeled in DCS - again, pity that ADF is not implemented at all. I think I will just go for a beeping sound in the mission, it works quite well, as it gets louder the closer you get to the source.

(...) pity that ADF is not implemented at all.

ADF works - but just not for every radio in every aircraft that would allow it in RL to be used for ADF. The sad thing is, there is no single frequency that would work for every aircraft. So you will have to know which aircraft the player will be flying to be able to choose a viable frequency for ADF.
