SquawkBox Transponder offset?

Recommended Posts

is there any way to read (and set) the state of the (Vatsim) SquawkBox Transponder?

The transponder in your aircraft should be the one Squawkbox is reading and using. There's surely no separate transponder it is creating, totally ignoring the one in the cockpit/panel?

If you are merely referring to the Transponder mode (mainly standby/on) setting and the Ident function, which are needed, then those Squawkbox functions are available via FSUIPC offsets for FS9 and Squawkbox 3. They are documented along with other useful offsets on SB3's own website.

For FSX, with Squawkbox 4, there are no such facilities at present. I am ready and wishing to put access facilities into FSUIPC4, not least for use of SB4 in my own cockpit (I use FSX exclusively), and I have written to the authors requesting this and suggesting a method we could use. They said they'd look into it. That was a couple of months or so ago. I send a reminder. Maybe it'll happen next year.
