Good show Sir! I'm really sorry that I couldn't do the ZLA swarm this year. It sounds like I missed a great event.


Anyway, couple of things: you recommended QuteScoop, did you know that is is an offshoot of Dolomynum (for Windows) http://dlnm.net


Also, for SquawkBox users, there is some documentation on the website about the dot commands but for your info, here they are (they are a great time saver)

 

  • .msg callsign message (send private message)
  • .info ATCcallsign (get info from ATC callsign)
  • .com1 frequency (set com1 to the frequency)
  • .com2 frequency (set com2 to the frequency)
  • .x nnnn (set transponder to nnnn)
  • .metar ICAO (get weather for airport ICAO code)
  • .wx ICAO (set weather to weajher for airport ICAO)


Cheers Graham
