VATSIM Announces New Voice Codex

The title header above is updated to the VATSIM link for information on updates based on the VATSIM client you use and the simulator package with details about how to update. Please note that VATSIM will be out of service for 24 hours starting at 2000Z 14 October. Use the embedded link to find specifics about your VATSIM setup.

VATSIM has announced that the long awaited CODEX rework on voice will be released to the general population on October 14th. This CODEX will improve radio communication on the network to include the move to "voice UNICOM" as well as other improvements in radio sound quality and use. It is unknown what effect this will have on the software supplied by VATSIM. VATSIM connection and interface are handled through client software, of which their are several. vPilot and SquawkBox are two such clients that are used for communicating and logging into a VATSIM server.

Announced via Facebook, VATSIM users should watch for updates and requests as VATSIM rolls out the new voice codex. VATSIM should be configured for "push-to-talk operation as improperly set voice activation will lead to "stuck mic" conditions. Voice UNICOM is set for 15 NM range. We will be seeking a company frequency moving forward with VATSIM once the new codex is rolled out.

This announcement is intended to prewarn pilots of the impending change at VATSIM. It is "unknown" how smooth the transition will be! So, heads up?

WestWind Virtual Airlines New Website ready for testing

The new website is now ready for beta testing. Your password for the current site will not work on the new site, so you have to request a new password. Currently everyone has full administration rights on the site to allow non managers to assist in testing the management pages. The database is completely separate from the existing site database, so if you are entering flight information in you will also need to enter it into the existing site. Once the testing is complete, the database will be copied from the existing site to the new site and all test data will be lost. If you find any bugs or have comments then please create a new topic on the forum in the following location http://forum.flywestwind.org/viewforum.php?f=79 and go into the Bugs or Comments section as applicable. Thank you in advance for your assistance
