FDC Live Cockpit! 2011
ATC chatter based on radio frequency
Although the geographic sections described above will probably provide more than sufficient functionality and variation for most users, FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 provides one more level of ATC chatter customisation. This feature allows you to actually tune your COM1 radio to an „ATC Channel“, so to speak, and only have files played belonging to this exact frequency.
You achieve this by creating a new folder in the appropriate geographical area and flight phase folder. This folder should should have the five digits of the radio frequency as its name. If you are to, say, include departure ATC chatter for the tower at London Heathrow airport at frequency 118.70, you should create a new folder under FDC\ AtcChatter\Europe_(West)\Departer_tower, and name it 11870. You should then copy the ATC chatter files that you have recorded in this folder. When you are ready to start your flight, you should set the geographic area for the departure airport to Europe (West), and tune your COM1 radio to the 118.70 frequency. You will soon listen to ATC chatter from the tower at London Heathrow airport!
Note! The folder names for ATC chatter controlled by frequency should consist of five digits. You should leave out the period (.). Files for the frequency of 118.95 should be placed in a folder named 11895.
Local ATC chatter
As you see above, the ATC chatter functionality in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 is pretty extensive. If you are frequently flying a GA type aircraft in your local area (for example in the vicinity of your local airport), this functionality is a little overwhelming. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 therefore also supports a local ATC chatter functionality, allowing you to quickly install your favourite ATC chatter files and have FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 play them all the time while you perform your flight. You simply copy your ATC chatter files to the root ATC chatter folder in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011. Select the Local ATC Chatter Only checkbox in the Misc Items panel in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 now ignores all the advanced options described above, and will only play the files located in the root folder.
