Trouble communicating with wingmen

I'm having trouble getting wingmen to respond to Radar On and Engage Bandits.

 

First bunch of missions, it seemed to work fine, after about mission 10, I haven't been hearing a response from them. I'm not sure if they are engaging or not. Definitely not in some cases, definitely once in one case.

 

I normally do this:

Dial 1 on red radio

Press transmit on red radio

Select comms menu Wingman 1 -> Radar -> On (or other)

 

If that fails, I try combinations of:

Dial 1 on red radio

Dial 1 on green radio

Press transmit on red radio

Press transmit on green radio

Use communication short cut (instead of transmit red / green)

Select comms menu Wingman 1 -> Radar -> On (or other)

Select comms menu Flight -> Radar -> On (or other)

 

And still silence.

 

Tried this directly after all airborne, and at other times during the mission.

 

What is the optimal way to get wingmen involved in the mission?

Thanks for responding.

I just re-tried Mission 13 via the editor to check.

Couldn't find obvious alternative radio freq in the knee pad except for 255.30 in on one page. No one responded on that frequency.

However, Wingman 2 did respond to both Flight and Wingman 2 from Red radio on 1 while parked at the start.

So I guess the radio must have been silent later in time when I actually played that mission and needed wingman comms.

During that mission, wingman was silent, but did drop his bombs, so I think he got the message.

Sometimes wingman is set to "silent" during specific moments of the mission. In others, you have a separate freq for AI wigmen, you should check the kneeboard - my guess is you are using the wrong one, it is not always Red 1.

That's F**ing good to know, thanks !
