New user confused with radio freqs

Post by Atlas » Mon Mar 09, 2020 9:36 pm

Hi! Sorry for the double post, I probably should've posted here to start with.

New user here, new to civilian flight simming, and so the issue is more likely my own rather than the plugin. I have XP11 installed, updated to whatever the latest version is at this time. I also have Orbx TE GB installed, a few other plugins, and that's it. I was getting frustrated with the XP11 ATC and was directed to this plugin. I've read the manual but probably missed where my issue is resolved so apologies if this is the case.

My issue with the plugin is that I cannot follow the instructions in the manual as written with regards to entering radio frequencies. It seems that the decimals for the plugin is out of place? For instance, the airport I was at (EGVO) had the tower freq at 122.100 MHz, the flight information window is showing 1221.00. The approach freq is 131.300 MHz, the window says 1313.00. Was there any setting I've forgotten to set?

Thanks in advance for the help!

As shown in the screenshot, it recognizes London Area Control as 128.12and my tuned freq is 128.125 but still shows as 128.15. However, the frequencies for EGHH has the decimal point 1 digit to the right.

The issue isn't wrong frequency per se as shown in the threads you linked. The issue is the correct frequency but with the decimal on the wrong place.

In the screenshot I attached, EGHH ground is listed as 1217.00 when it should be 121.700, EGHH tower is listed as 1256.00 when it should be 125.600.

And what do the entries in the apt.dat file for EGVO for TWR look like?

How do I find that? I tried searching for apt.dat files but there isn't one specific to that airport.

Not sure if I'm doing this correctly but this is the airport data from WED. The first five are for EGHH (Bournemouth) which you can then compare with the screenshot I've posted. The last two are for EGVO (Odiham).

The apt.dat file should be in this location (if any):

... \ X-Plane 11 \ Custom Scenery \ EGVO \ Earth nav data

Nope, don't have that. I only have default XP11 and then ORBX TE GB South scenery which is where EGVO and EGLL are located. The only apt.dat located in the ORBX folders is for the EGLH [H] Needles Lighthouse.

Is the screenshot I posted not enough proof? That was taken from the \X-Plane 11\Custom Scenery\Global Airports\Earth nav data\apt.dat file.

I get correct frequencies.
Guys any post without log attached is just useless.

I'm not sure what happened but deleting the folder and re-installing the plugin fixed this issue.
