It is with great pleasure that Simulation Hardware announces the release of our AVC Tuner.
What is AVC Tuner?
AVC Tuner has been approved for use on the Vatsim network by the VATSIM board of governors.
The AVC Tuner monitors the VATSIM network and the pilots COM radio.
When the COM radio of the plane you are flying is:
A) Tuned to the frequency of an online controller
B) Within radio range of that controller
Then AVC Tuner will automatically move your voice program (AVC) to that controller's voice channel. It will also provide audible feedback to indicate that a controller was found and tuned to.
AVC Tuner will monitor the Vatsim network and update the list of controllers ever few minutes.
It will also tell you if the controller you are tuned to disconnects.
What this means to the pilots is that you no longer have to use Squawk Box to change to a different controllers.
How much does it cost?
Nothing! AVC Tuner is free!
