  1. As others have correctly said, there is no reason a non-rnav aircraft should be excluded from any event such as this. Since you indicated that the denial was by a Delivery controller, I would like to believe that it was someone new and inexperienced, although ZNY is pretty comprehensive with their training since there are four Bravo airports in their airspace. But I think this was just a mistake, and not a standard practice in New York. A more experienced controller would have accommodated you without question. In fact, ZNY's Delivery SOP contains the following: "In all cases if a pilot is una
  2. Normally I tack on a little sentiment of my own, but there's nothing I can say that isn't already covered in Don's post. Happy Thanksgiving, and please keep our troops and first responders in mind as you enjoy your day.
  3. See the information in this post: viewtopic.php?f=132&t=64672
  4. Downloaded the update this morning, and cannot connect. It appears that the servers aren't being fetched. Tried different facilities including ZLA with same results. Removed and reinstalled, no difference. Happens with both downloaded facility files and manual entry. I can load a config file, but none of the info across the top is populated. Win7 with VRC. Full text of error msg available.
  5. Outstanding work Merik! Thank you for all the research and effort you put into this.
  6. Well for some reason, it is working perfectly today for CTP. So if someone tweaked something, thanks!
  7. Thanks, but when I tried that, the messages on the command line disappeared as well. Is that the correct behavior? I'm still learning my way around Euroscope. EDIT: Ah, you're right. I found it in the wiki. "With this option we can display the incoming messages (with time stamp) on top of the radar screen, with double clicking we can hide them and go to answer them." Thanks much!
  8. I'm seeing inbound text messages repeated at the top of the screen, scrolling down and making it difficult to see other data. I'm sure it's some setting somewhere, but I haven't been able to discover a way to stop it. I included the quick settings in the image to show what is and isn't selected. I'd love a way to remove this.
  9. There is a work-around for this, but it's not pretty. You can download a little app called AutoHotKey. With it, you can write a brief script that will send a keypress to VRC every X minutes to mimic your transmit key. If your transmit key is one of the CTRL keys, it should work. If it is a different key, VRC will have to have focus or it won't work. Not elegant, but it works, at least for me. http://www.autohotkey.com/
  10. Ian, old friend, very nice to hear from you! And Ross, thanks very much for checking in on this.
  11. I wasn't expecting or asking Ross to modify the client, just wondering if there was something that could be tweaked by the user to accommodate the download. I know it worked correctly at one time by the discussions in the VRC forums on Ross' site.
  12. FWIW, the downloaded NAT tracks are current and correct.
  13. No, I'll do that and report back. Thanks.
  14. When I download the current NAT tracks from within VRC and display them, the western-most portion goes off into space rather than connecting with the entry/exit point. I've verified that the fixes have the correct coordinates in the sector file, and in fact the five-letter fixes are displayed correctly. The track hits the final LAT/LON fix, and then all tracks wander off to the same point in the southern hemisphere. (See image) It seems to me there is something wrong with the download, but I can't see it, so don't know. Any idea how to correct this? Western tracks Eastern tracks
