General Discussion / ATC Training
« on: July 25, 2021, 05:28:43 PM »
I am trying to make sure I am on the right path for training as an ATC Controller. I have completed the Academy CBTs up to the instructor section and all of the ZJX CBTs. I have alco scheduled my first training session with an instructor/mentor for the first week in August. I have read that I should receive an email once all the CBTs have been completed but have not seen any emails as of yet. Should I complete the CBTs for becoming an instructor as well? Am I on the right path? I have already taken one test that let me become able to choose my sector, are there more that I am missing? Is there a written syllabus somewhere to follow?
Thank you for any guidance I can receive.

When I'm flying, how do I pick up my clearance and squawk if no one is working the sector I'm departing from?


The Control Room Floor / Comms

I am trying to listen in, OBS, on a freq however when I put the position name and freq into the communications box and then try to select the RX, HDST, and SPKR buttons, only the RX button will be selected. When I try to select the other two I get a beep sound and a msg in the command box that reads :Error: No voice channel specified." I guess I got lucky yesterday when I was able to make it work. What am I doing wrong?

General Discussion / Setting up my scope, sweatbox
« on: July 20, 2021, 01:35:43 PM »
Hello, I'm a newbie and I just got to the lessons on how to set up my scope. Everything went well until I got to the part about setting up the sweatbox. I kinda got lost when trying yo create the myservers.txt file. When I tried to create this file it seemed to be on a notepad and not a real file. Is this something I need to wait on until I have been assigned an instructor or, if not can you tell me what I might be doing wrong? I must admit that computers a not a strong point for me.
