Don't you already know that you're transmitting? I mean, you are aware that you're pressing the PTT key ...

If you're looking for a way to know that you're pressing PTT *and* vPilot is connected to an active controller's voice channel, then that functionality already exists, in the inverse sense. vPilot sounds a buzzer if you press the PTT when you're not on an active voice channel.

#476990 the other would probably be to do a feedback loop so you hear yourself transmitting. this can already be accomplished without editing the software though (tune com1 and 2 to the same freq, activate both frequencies. youll get the feedback)

That can be done by observing either the debug window messages, or the TX box lighting up.

That's more of a visual indicator. An aural indicator is, as Tony specifies, an audible feedback indicator. I'm pretty sure FSInn and Squawkbox both have this feature available.

It's actually beneficial to have two aural indicators - one when transmission starts, and one when transmission terminates. The latter could be used for quick identification of a "stuck mic" situation on the pilot's end in which case the "transmission terminated" chirp would not be observed.

I was addressing your comment about troubleshooting ... visual is all you need for that.

Maybe I did not make my self clear before. As Scott states, I was looking for an audio noise when the ptt key is pressed as fsinn uses on an active voice channel. The light does me no good as to vpilot is on a small screen in a simpit with surround projectors as I do not use text not the latter ross as you state.

#477090 No, I understand ... as you said you want to know when you're transmitting. I'm saying that if you press PTT, and you DON'T hear the buzzer, you know you're transmitting.

Haha ... just wait for the next version ... it'll administer an electric shock instead of the buzzer. ;)

Thank you very much for your time sir. I guess vpilot is not for my setup.

But if the PTT press is not received by the software, then no buzzer will sound. The negative feedback scheme is completely useless.
