I am attaching the beta version 0.2 of the atc.nas script.
You can see the short history of this project here
This code is not intended to compete with FGComm, Festival or other similar
facilities. On the contrary, their use is indicated when they are not
available (eg, few hardware resources, no Internet connection, etc.)
1.- How to use it
Once installed, tune Comm1 to the desired frequency and press the ">" key
to transmit your request.
You will hear the ATC's answer according the standard VFR phraseology,
depending on your current position:
* If you are on ground => The script interprets it's a taxi request (if
you are far from the runway) or a take-off request (if you are on the
correct Runway or at his holding point).
* If you are flying => The script interprets it's an approach request
(if you tunned an Approach freq.), or a landing request (if you tunned a
Note that only TWR freqs can deliver landing or take-off clearances, and
only GND or TWR stations can deliver taxiing ones.
Only at initial contact, the ATC message includes his station name & type,
and the current QNH.
APP stations will give a vector to the rwy in use (if you are far from
there) or order to contact TWR (if you are inside CTR).
TWR stations will give instructions to join pattern or make direct
on your position).
2.- How to install it
Put the attached file into the $FGFS_ROOT/Nasal/ directory, as *atc.nas*
and bind a key or button. I use "<" key.
I hope to have the help of beta-testers, which can bring a fresh look.
All opinions and comments are welcome. Both, regarding the script behavoir
and his nasal structure.
