You do not need to set BOTH buttons for PTT, if you don’t want to. You can use either PTT button. Please view the reply just above your first post here on Page 7 of this thread (click here), it explains the PTT mode in plain examples.
If you don’t want to transmit on UHF, then why are you not just using the VHF for PTT? Remember also, this is an optional system – and it is turned OFF by default. If this mode is ON, then you have to push one of the PTT buttons you set for your controller in VoiceAttack and in both PTT Push/Release commands (VHF and/or UHF) in order for a command to fire (they will be recognized, but exit any AVCS4 Command if PTT ON and PTT BUTTON NOT PRESSED)
This Radio System is designed to allow Immersive Control of AI Wingmen through the in-game Radio Menus. If a Human is your #2 Wingman, but an AI Computer Controlled Pilot is #3 Element Leader, then AVCS4 allows you to set your #2 Wingman as “Human” –using the command “Set a Human Pilot” and assigning #2 Wingman as Human-- during the flight, if you say, “Two Say Fuel”, the in-game Radio Menu command will NOT fire (because you set that pilot to Human). But if you say, “Three Say Fuel”, it WILL fire because it assumes all pilots (in this example, #3 Element Lead) are NOT human.
Other Human Pilots do NOT need to hear you speak to your Computer Pilots such as #3 in the example above, but AVCS4 lets this occur for immersion and you can use whatever PTT button you feel is appropriate (VHF or UHF), or not at all (PTT MODE OFF).
Use VHF or UHF as you wish, it doesn’t matter to AVCS4, or BMS.
thanks for the feedback. I have tried to read again all of the comments and your message but I am confused about the use of UHF, VHF.
- the way I used it now: UHF/VHF mode off. I press a specific button on the warthog (this is the IFF in function) to talk to voiceattack. It works very well. However, not ideal to my view as I would rather use UHF/VHF buttons only so that when for example I request departure, I will talk on UHF and my teammates AND voiceattack will hear my comms
- when I do activate UHF/VHF mode on: I remove the PTT function assigned to the joystick. Then I see Voiceattack listen to me but when I am in Falcon, no actions are done
If too hard to understand, we could connect on discord to discuss about it
