Navaid reach in FG...

Postby jcomm » Fri Feb 24, 2012 9:13 am

I am about to test the new v2.6 :-)
Having been away from flightsims for quite a while, I was trying to find out what is new in this great platform.
Regarding radio navigation, I wonder if VOR/TACAN/DME reach is modelled acccording to reality including "reach furhter the higher you fly", or even "lign of sight" propagation for non-Doppler devices, or weather / land-water interference on wave propagation?
In RL there is an inverted top like pattern for this sort of radio navigation.

Is this modelled in FG 2.6 ?

I know that someone has been spending some time simulating general radio signal propagation, to account for scenery etc. but I don't know what state that is in. You may want to search the -devel mailing list.

It will be integrated pretty soon, probably before 2.8.0
