I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK.
A good source of information in this respect is SkyVector and their website can be found here:- https://skyvector.com/
Just as a example to show what's available, I clicked on Philadelphia KPHL airport and got all sorts of details on frequencies and charts. Please see photo below.
Hope this helps
If the “Connect” & “Disconnected” you’re referring to are from the VATSIM text dialog box within X-Plane’s screen, then it means you’re not successfully connected to a VATSIM server. In which case, you have no communication link to speak of--it has nothing to do with frequencies. Review the dialog text to see if it includes any message explaining why you’re being disconnected. I assume you have entered your valid VATSIM login ID and password.
You mean the “Unknown publisher” warning? That’s okay as long as you’ve downloaded it from audio.vatsim.net.
Audio for VATSIM is an application separate from X-Plane--it’s not a plug-in. So it is installed into the “Program Files (x86)” folder (for Windows).
Are you able to connect to VATSIM without being disconnected?
You can try a different server via the drop-down menu, in the opening Connection dialog. Other than that, I don’t know what else to tell you.
Until you achieve a stable connection to VATSIM, audio is not the concern.
I wonder if problem could be firewall related. If using Windows, X-Plane should be allowed to communicate through its Defender firewall.
You might also want to check if the VATSIM forum can help, either from an existing topic or post a new question there...
Well… Houston, we’ve got a problem!
When you were at Houston, was there an active ATC in the Texas area for you to talk with? Have you used VATSpy to determine there was actually a live ATC at the time and tune your COM to its frequency?
Things to check for are: Is the frequency shown in Audio for VATSIM box correct? Has the upper-left button turned to green “Disconnect”? Does the TX indicator light up when you’re transmitting (when pushed to talk)?
Have you selected a (joystick) button to be the Transmit button? It’s in the Audio for VATSIM’s Settings, under PPT Settings.
Looks like you’re real close.
something bad just happened it's all my bad!! First of all i got vatspy and did all that stuff but it still doesn't work. The problem is this on vatspy i saw a thing that looked like a IP address and i thought okay maybe i type that into xsquawckbox. Then i thought okay if i type in the port number of the multiplayer section on xplane and i typed it into xsquawckbox. But then it didn't connect but i don't know the port number that was there before. But no luck with hearing any one or any one hearing me.
Double check the VATSIM ID and password are correct at the top of the Audio for VATSIM (AFV) dialog box.
Are the microphone and Output Devices set to appropriate sources? E.g. are you using a headset? Turn up their volume sliders.
The COM radio in your aircraft also has to be set accordingly. E.g. stick with COM1 as a starter, select COM1 in the aircraft.
Use the Windows’ Sound Control Panel to check if your microphone (i.e., recording device) is actually functioning.
I left the “X-Plane IP Address” at its default (127.0.0.1), and it works for me.
If you locate your plane to an airport with an active ATIS broadcast, there’d be a continuously playing sound track for you to troubleshoot with (the listening part at least).
