  1. In other cases is wise to ask for fuel, but on this case is obvious the a/c has enough fuel on board since he is departing. Probably the pilot need to use the jettison system or fly for at least one hour or maybe more to waste the extra fuel and get back safely to the ground; this is in those cases were weight is over landing-weight. When declaring an emergency, fuel should be given in time remaining. When FOB information is relayed to ARFF, sit should be given in pounds or gallons, not time remaining. *edited for accuracy, thanks for pointing that out... hadn't yet taken my head out
  2. It's really not that hard. I'd urge anyone interested in creating these files to do it old school, trial and error style. Like I said, it's really not that difficult. Someone with the initiative to learn something like that on their own is of great value to the network.
  3. KBNA - 4 arrivals, 3 departures. Thanks for the traffic guys!
  4. Seems the corridor can be spotty at times. I intend on controlling if duty doesn't call.
  5. Just to throw this out here... but it doesn't help when VA's get shut down that have a major hub in your airspace [e.g. Northwest, FedEx]. We saw much more traffic from these guys when they were still an entity and not individual guys who decide to do a NW leg. I am aware that virtual NW does exist to some extent, but traffic did take a big hit when these guys went down. Memphis without NW and FedEx = ghost town.
  6. He's still going... might want to send the medics to check on this poor fella! MDCS_CTR 124.300 Mario Jelencovich Controller 935319 USA-SE 19/09/2006 10:58:53 33:40:29
  7. For observing, I would say use the area you are observing, in this case Salt Lake [ZLC], your initials [AS], and since you're observing [OBS]. Put em together and you get ZLC_AS_OBS or just ZLC_AS. This type of callsign seems to be the norm for people observing, but you can use whatever you'd like as long as it's not vulgar or disruptive to ATC.
  8. It's up, must be your isp. It was slow for me earlier today, but seems to be getting better.
  9. After more trouble than we would have liked to have gone through, zmeartcc.org is back online. You can change the link on the VATUSA site.
  10. Not sure what DAT stands for (no pun intended) but congrats... may the URET be with you!
  11. I have recently had trouble with aircraft not climbing and/or descending. I'm not sure what triggered this but everytime I run it at least one or more aircraft don't climb/descend. I haven't done a reinstall yet. Any help/ideas would be appreciated.
  12. It's a lot easier just to click the ARTCC link on the right side of the homepage. But yes, that page is jacked up.
  13. It is now Feb. 10, 1500z and the site is down, at least for me.
