Or if you see the code they are actually squawking instead of the ground speed, that means you have [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned them a code but they aren't squawking it yet. If you see CODE that means they have a duplicate code and you need to [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ign them a new one and ask them to set it.

Of course, with some types of airplanes, it can get a little confusing. Here is a transcript of a conversation I had with a pilot the other day:

 

SEA_CTR> Sir, squawk 6600

BWAXXX> Already squawking 6600

SEA_CTR> Uh, I see a squawk code of 1050

BWAXXX> That would be my airspeed sir - I am a Concorde

hmmm pilot would be wrong... it is the groundspeed

 

An easy way to double check is to radioselect the aircraft and the look at the bottom part of the Aircraft window. First line should look like:

LXP265 B732/A 2431 1200

 

In that case, it is aquawking 1200 while the [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned code is 2431

 

If it reads

LXP265 B732/A 2431

The aircraft was [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned 2431 and is squawking accordingly

 

cheers!

Only problem with that is that both ASRC and VRC show groundspeed by XX x 10^2

 

Therfore 1050 kts groundspeed is 105 no?
