  1. I'm testing out the setup for ZSE, and am running into an issue where the magvar and true courses don't align with what I would expect. JINMO -> WHAMY, via "LA (T when getting True bearing)" is shown in vERAM as BEARING * 190 MAGNETIC BEARING * 175 TRUE but the value should be closer to BEARING * 175 TRUE BEATING * 159 MAGNETIC
  2. The FAA has not yet announced if/when they will set up an STMP for the Super Bowl.
  3. It's a real world (or real world style) US approach radar video map. It depicts markers, off-field NDBs and VORs, position splits, ILS and non-precision approaches, obstructions, possibly some minor airports without public approaches, and intersections. There is typically a second map holding just the minimum vectoring altitudes, and sometimes maps with just RNAV approaches.
  4. One-in-one-out still applies for all IFR flights to non-towered airports, and instrument procedures to towered airports where only the slow-updating ARSR provides coverage.
  5. Okay, cool ... so they won't be using it. It's strange that the FAA airport diagram doesn't show it as closed. The runway is NOTAM'd closed excluding flight check aircraft.
  6. As per the real world, we will not be using the new runway until the November 28 TPP cycle outside of certain tests. I am working on scenery for FSX, but someone with FS9 will need to do a back-port of the FSX scenery or generate their own, using my approach code (which works in both versions of the sim)
  7. Reminder to pilots: The FSX/FS9/X-plane default 16R/34L has been renamed 16C/34C. Seattle controllers will be using 16C/34C in all radio communications.
  8. The one in question is a "generous" amount; smaller ISPs have been testing limits in the neighborhood of 5-20GB/Mo.
  9. What kind of router do you have? For "Linksys' WRT54G/GL/GS, Buffalo WHR-G54S/WHR-HP-G54 and other Broadcom-based routers" there's the open source Tomato firmware, or you can get a software monitor for each computer.
  10. Real world, they have NTML to coordinate traffic. The RW OIS website, just like this one, is more oriented towards pilots wanting to see what/why there are delays into ZNY airports
  11. Are you sure the radar mode is set to Tower or Ground, and that you have the "realistic data tag mode" disabled?
  12. The EUG ACTC has an ARTS radar in the tower cab for the late night/early morning shifts where one person works all positions from DEL to APP from the cab. Once more people arrive, and the MFR sector is activated, the work is shifted down to the radar room at the base of the tower. Interesting.. I wonder how they got by the FAA directive that there are now supposed to be at least two people in the cab at all times.. BL. The other person is probably a SUP.

  14. Glad I'm not the only one who thought that first
  15. Keith, I'd say it's also a matter of trust with regards to VFR around/under the bravo. I've had countless aircraft depart VFR, then once below the shelf and/or out from the underlying Delta and sent on their way to unicom, do an immediate climb and bust the Bravo. It almost becomes habitual to send the 'contact me' early, because you just KNOW he's going to bust it. The topic of busting airspace is very big now in the RW, where pilots with a GPS can skirt verrrry close to the point that ATC's radar claims they're in, but the GPS claims the pilot isn't.
  16. Nah, he tried to use it for a simulated carrier landing with a rake for a tail hook
  17. They did change it; they changed the crossing at OLM landing South for turbojets from at 17000 and 280kt to at or above 17000 and 280kt (formerly changed by NOTAM), and added the waypoint LACEE
  18. If I understand it correctly, if you change the external port (VRC uses whatever local port happens to be open) then the VATISM servers will not receive the data, as that's the port they send/receive data on.
  19. The ARTS-II at KEUG ( two consoles cover both EUG_APP and MFR_APP) has the monochromatic display with sweep.
  20. What I find funny is how the Cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] B now pokes out of the Mode C veil. How are they going to tell if a VFR with no transponder 30 miles out busts the Bravo when radar doesn't see him?
  21. Correct. Either "November two two six five tango" or "Mooney two two six five tango", but not both. Also, in the US, ATC is the only one which can shorten the callsign to the last three numerals/characters of the tail number. After they do, pilots may use the same convenvion. For example: N2256T: "Seattle Approach, Mooney two two six five tango with a VFR request" SEA_APP: "Money six five tango, Seattle Approach, go ahead" N2256T: "Mooney six five tango request flight following"
