Radio Frequency Preset Channels


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to add a list of preset radio frequency channels to a mission without hand-jamming 20 - 40 frequencies per aircraft group? Could this be achieved through a LUA file or mission template?

 

I am aware that each aircraft has unique radio channel requirements. Could there be a master file that would be referenced? For example, I create a mission with an F-14, F-16, F/A-18, and Mirage 2000. Can I make one master list of radio presets for each aircraft type?

Unfortunately no that isn't currently a feature in DCS. 

 

You can modify the miz file itself. Within it the radios are stored on a per aircraft basis and are generally in a format like below. You can manually go in and edit the presets or write some code to do it for you. 

 

["Radio"] = 
{
    [1] = 
    {
        ["modulations"] = 
        {
            [1] = 0,
            [2] = 0,
            [4] = 0,
            [8] = 0,
            [16] = 0,
            [17] = 0,
            [9] = 0,
            [18] = 0,
            [5] = 0,
            [10] = 0,
            [20] = 0,
            [21] = 0,
            [11] = 0,
            [22] = 0,
            [3] = 0,
            [6] = 0,
            [12] = 0,
            [24] = 0,
            [25] = 0,
            [13] = 0,
            [26] = 0,
            [7] = 0,
            [14] = 0,
            [15] = 0,
            [19] = 0,
            [23] = 0,
        }, -- end of ["modulations"]
        ["channels"] = 
        {
            [1] = 243,
            [2] = 264,
            [4] = 256,
            [8] = 257,
            [16] = 261,
            [17] = 267,
            [9] = 255,
            [18] = 251,
            [5] = 254,
            [10] = 262,
            [20] = 266,
            [21] = 133,
            [11] = 259,
            [22] = 257.8,
            [3] = 265,
            [6] = 250,
            [12] = 268,
            [24] = 123.3,
            [25] = 344,
            [13] = 269,
            [26] = 385,
            [7] = 270,
            [14] = 260,
            [15] = 263,
            [19] = 253,
            [23] = 122.1,
        }, -- end of ["channels"]
    }, -- end of [1]

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

For new missions, there is a way: you can create a static template containing one aircraft of each type, each with the radio presets like you want, and set to hidden and uncontrolled.

 

 Then, when you begin to edit a new mission, you load this static template and thereafter whenever you need a new aircraft group, you copy one of the template aircrafts Instead of using an aircraft from the left palette. Change its pilot type, quantity, call sign, etc and the rest is the same as if using a new aircraft taken from the palette.
