atc-discussion New at Shanwick - finding my way around

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I have just been released to control Shanwick and I am quite excited to join the group here.

I am now getting setup with the plugin euroNAT - unfortunately it does not seem to load any NATs at all. I have also registered with the Oceanic Tool http://new.vnas.net, but my application is still pending.

How have you setup Euroscope to work this sector? Are you using the Shanwick Sector file provided by VATUK or anything else?

Personally, I'm mostly controlling with a spreadsheet and some iteration of the S/GAATS config from Stephan

HI Chris,

thanks, actually I have used the Oceanic Tool today, after a bug was fixed by the developer. It actually worked quite nicely. I even had a couple of pilots using CPDLC with me.

I have also resorted now to using the Euroscope Extension file from last year's Cross The Pond, together with their more up to date sector file. I made some tweaks here and there.

Do you have this S/GAATS config? All the links from the linked thread are dead, unfortunately.

I do!

 

 

Also, we're working on a new OCA sector file

Hi Chris,

good to hear about this! Does S/GAATS still work for you?

In the meantime I have shared my modified sector file, in case that you are interested:

I haven't checked it in a while - but it's just tags/symbology so there is no reason why it shouldn't

Hello all,

Just to reopen this post, what is the best / latest and most up-to-date setup/software for controlling Shanwick? I have a session tomorrow evening.

      Hi,
      Does anyone know where I can get the actual client for Audio For Vatsim that runs alongside Euroscope?
      Thanks in advance,
      Regards

      Hello all,
      I was finding a more realistic way to give out PDC's via text. I thought of using these two messages:
      .pdc1 .msg $aircraft $dep PDC: $aircraft CLRD TO $arr $deprwy via $sid INIT ALT: $alt squawk $asquawk ATIS $atiscode NO READBACK REQUIRED. If you're happy with this PDC, please verify by replying to this message, saying: "ACCEPT".
       
      If they reply with 'accept' then I send out this second message.

      .pdc2 .msg $aircraft Thank you, $aircraft. Contact $callsign on frequency $com when FULLY ready to push and start with stand number, ATIS info, aircraft type AND current QNH
      I preferably wanted all of the important information from the second message into the first message. However, I discover that euroscope has a word limit as to how long your messages can be.
      I'm wondering what you guys think of this procedure. Are vatsim pilots very responsive? As well, is there a way to automatically send out the second message by a somewhat means of detection from the pilot when he/she says 'accept'?
      I hope what I just said makes sense. 
       
      Many thanks!
