not able to receive aircraft voice

Recommended Posts

Hello I know its not just me but when using vstars I have my voice server set but when im speaking aircraft can hear me but I cannot hear the aircraft. Why is this?


Just for background, do you have all of the required buttons selected? You should have "HS" for headset or "LS" for speaker (depending on your configuration), then all three RX, PRI, and TX buttons.

yes I do I have it all configured but the voice server I am using is voice.zlcartcc.com any specific voice server I should try? Cause when I tried it this time it was working for like 3-5 min then it started to break up when they were reading back.

There are 15 "official" VATSIM voice servers (with a few more "unofficial" ones lurking about), with rw.liveatc.net probably the most popular - at least from what I've seen. Here's the current list advertised in the data feed:

rw-asia.liveatc.net:Asia, Japan:LiveATC-Asia:1:R:

When you say they started to "break up", do you mean the transmissions you were receiving were choppy? That sounds like you were losing some of the UDP voice packets. If it were a port forwarding issue, I'd expect it to be more of an "all or nothing", e.g. after 3 minutes of not transmitting you simply wouldn't receive any incoming transmissions. Instead, it could be an issue with your internet connection or perhaps some filtering/firewalling software.


Out of curiosity, were you on wireless? Did you try disabling your firewall software and listening for any improvements?
