No sound when trying to listen to atc


Recommended Posts

So I am a noobie on VATSIM (using Xsquawkbox) and I have red that I can listen to atc by connecting to the network, tune in on the controller's frequency at the airport I'm at. I also set up my voice input and output to COM 1 and 2. But when I connect to the controller's frequency (yes it was staffed) after I connected to VATSIM, I don't hear anything from atc or other pilots and there was a lot of traffic around.

 

I hope someone can help me because I really want to be able to hear atc and when I'm ready and understand the phraseology, to talk to atc.

There is a "feature" in xPilot that may be the same for XSquawkBox, and might be worth investigating. I've found that you have to have a microphone and a an audio output device hooked up and selected to hear the new codec.

 

So for me, if I want to be receive only, and use my earbuds so's not to wake the family, I still have to plug in a standalone microphone for the audio to be heard.
