Many people asked me for tutorials about certain aspects of DCS. Here are a couple of guides I made.

Thank You! Very helpful.

I downloaded your mission and have basic understanding but little experience.

With your Chuck mission there are already triggers for the Allies and Ger

They say "Add Radio Item"

do I ignore these? or were they placed to pre-setup flags for radio station or something else completely.

Its a little confusing since Your How to create a WWII Radio Station PDF seems to create new triggers should I follow the guide and ignore those other flags? Which step do jump to for this according to your guide? Thanks for any help in advance.

 

Could you include the FW190-D Frequency range in your PDF? I believe its the FuG16 The set operates in the frequency range between 38.4 and 42.4 MHz is this correct?

The "Add Radio Item" triggers are simply triggers that create "radio items". When you press "\", you have a radio menu in white letters that pops up. Each little item can be activated with keys going from F1 to F12. The "Add Radio Item" trigger allows me to add another menu that can be activated throughout your radio. You will see an "F10: Other" radio item. If you press F10, you will see what specific radio items I added (they are used to spawn either P-51s or FW190s).

 

In other words, these radio items have nothing to do with actual radios and you should not touch them unless you want to change the triggers.

 

 

Thank You! Very helpful.

All ADF frequencies are included in the very thorough guide for the FW190 released by Eagle Dynamics already.

Charly, do you have any plans for a Mig-21 and Ka-50 tutorial? Thanks TC

Thank You Charlie Very helpful indeed.

I asked a question in my post I did look into the manual but I didn't know if that frequency range is correct for the correct radio to listen to radio stations.

 

I believe its the FuG16 The set operates in the frequency range between 38.4 and 42.4 MHz is this correct?

For the Dora and the Kurfürst:

 

"The Frequency Selector for the FuG 16ZY radio has four positions indicated by symbols. All four positions are locked to specific frequencies before flight. The pilot cannot manually set frequencies beyond the four presets. Presets can be set on the ground (in the special tab of mission editor) from band range 38.4 – 42.4 MHz."

 

Took it from the FW190D-9 manual p 77. The Dora uses the same radio system as the 109.

 

For the Mustang:

 

"The SCR-522-A command radio is a push-button controlled transmitter-receiver that operates in the 100 - 156 MHz band and is used for radio homing and two-way voice communication."

 

Overall:

 

P-51D: 100 - 156 MHz

Bf.109K-4: 38.4 – 42.4 MHz

FW190D-9: 38.4 – 42.4 MHz

Great work as always Charly, but one thing you might need to change in the P-51D start up section is that you need the engine turning when you prime it after a recent update.

 

Thanks

 

I intend to completely rewrite the P-51D guide once I am done with the A-10C and the Mi-8.

 

The P-40 and the P-47 are still nowhere to be seen, so I still have some time for other modules. ;)
