VATSIM Announces Voice Upgrade at Flightsim Convention in UK

The VATSIM Board of Governors announced, at the convention in Britain, that the voice system for VATSIM is in the process of being upgraded to leverage technology, improve realism, and provide a more realistic experience. This voice system upgrade is more then a CODEX upgrade, in that they have rethought the approach to model communications in a more realistic manner.

The changes will allow voice UNICOM, and provide a more realistic Line-Of-Sight (LOS) based communications experience. UNICOM will now support voice, the way its done in real-world flying, as well as the ability to implement a true "company frequency" most likely assigned by VATSIM. The "upgrade" will require software replacement of all clients, both for controlling and flying as beta testing is completed.

VATSIM still is unsure of how they will roll this out. For WestWind VATSIM users, the change may require changes to your clients for flying, and upgrades of your controlling software, if you're controlling. The change is in beta, so there is time, but keep your ears open as VATSIM transitions into the new scheme. They did not mention "typing", a legacy remnant. If you fly, typing to ATC, there may be some questions and changes coming.
