atc-discussion ATIS setup enquiry

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

When setting up an atis, I like to add additional information such as: "Delivery is closed" etc. However, whenever a new atis is updated, the information resets itself, removing my addition information and the only way I see of doing it is to re-add the information every time a new atis is updated. Is there a better way of doing this?

Add the variable in the ATISMaker URL, rather than the big text boxes,

bits at the end such as &delclosed or &depcont=123.9 will work

A list of all the available phrases are available from http://www.uniatis.net/atis_display.php?type=custom&icao=EGZZ

note that’s the custom phrases available to all airfields in the UK, some have extra specific ones, again available from the same site.

If you visit the UniATIS website and click on "custom" next to the aerodrome you are controlling, any line that starts with url are options that can be added to your ATIS.

So for Gatwick, if this is your ATIS maker link:


You can add options by using an ampersand (&) then the option name, so for delivery is closed, you would append &delclosed to the end of the link; example:


If LVPs are in force, you can add &lvp to the end of the link, and so on.

Replace this as your ATIS maker URL in Euroscope (see below), then click Test URL to regenerate the ATIS immediately, and that should remain for any new ATIS updates. If you need to add/remove things, change the URL as necessary and click Test URL to force the change.

Hope this helps!

      Just wondering now that I have my S1 at some point after I operated at EGCC GND would it be possible to control EGAA. How would I go about getting that sector or is Belfast not available

      Hi all,
      I've noticed recently a few instances where GND controllers are refusing to give aircraft departing 23R at EGCC holding point J1 due to the real-world situation of Max 8's being parked there. Whilst I understand that we are a simulation network, and we try to replicate real-world circumstance where practical, I don't think that insisting on limitations that act to the detriment of people flying out of Manchester conforms with the spirit of the game.
      If pilots wish to simulate the max 8's blocking J1 they are, of course, more than welcome to, but if someone specifically requests J1, it should be given. Real world, the lack of access to J1 is causing real issues to airlines operating long-haul routes, it makes no sense to impose the same limitation on people wishing to fly those same routes on VATSIM.
      Contrary opinions or thoughts welcome.

      Hello Moderators,
      I have been waiting a long time for the next OBS ATC training session so I can carry on with my training. I have finished the theory course already. Hopefully I will get one soon.

      Hi all,
      As I see this coming up on Slack, I thought I'd post this here while the official BoG blog post is being proof-read and posted: the UK2 server has been taken out of service and the UK1 server has been renamed to just "UK". In your client, you would need to change the server to "UK". However, for voice, I've found there's no need to change any of your voice configuration settings as far as servers are concerned.
      From personal experience, some of the servers (Germany, in particular) seem to have some problems with the METARs being displayed: https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=79161 , however, the UK server seems to have no issue with them. I hope this helps somebody while we all settle down with the change and the official announcement becomes public 😄

      Just in case anyone hadn't seen this plugin pop up on the .net forums
      It draws a circle around the aircraft transmitting (if on screen), or a line to the aircraft if off screen. Can be a massive help when controlling a busy bandboxed sector.
