  1. Setting it from +14 or so down to 0 has helped hugely although some stations are very quiet. Maybe -72 eliminates the problem altogether.
  2. I have just tried setting output volume to 0 and that hasn't cured the problem. Just heard it while listening to EGKK_GND at 1222Z 8 May, transmission by EGKK_GND to a KLM callsign. Just heard it again as I type this at 1224Z, VIR27X calling for clearance triggered it about 5 seconds into his transmission. I'll try disabling realistic ATC audio effects and see if that makes a difference.
  3. This is a real problem for me. I miss about 1 in 8 transmissions because the volume spikes to painful levels and the only way to avoid it is to rip my headphones off before it ramps to max. I'm on Windows 10 and none of the settings tweaks published so far prevent this from happening. I can tell when it's going to happen - it seems that pilots and controllers whose mic volume is set to max triggers it most often. I imagine in their client the mic input volume is routinely dancing in the red sector.

  5. Something I find useful is the STAR Overview feature on Navigraph. It lays the track of all the STARS on the map displayed in Navigraph along with your pre-programmed route. That way you can instantly see which are the most likely STARS you'll be [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned. I fly Airbuses and the Q400 and have no knowledge of Boeing FMSes but the bus has a 'secondary flightplan' function. I copy the active flightplan into that and then set up what I think is the second most likely approach or combination of factors (STAR, transitions and runways). Normally this all goes out of the win
