Radio Altimeter sounds



  • Hello all. Firstly loving the product. However, for some reason that I cannot figure out, I am not hearing any minimums callout or radio altimeter callouts. I've tried doing a fall uninstall followed by reinstall but to no joy. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Many thanks.

    Is this in P3D v4 or v5?

    Can you hear all the other custom sounds (e.g. switches)?

    Are you flying a full flight when checking this (i.e. take-off, climb, cruise and then approach)?



  • Many thanks for your reply. I can hear all the other custom sounds. Currently using P3D v4. I got the sounds to work if I programmed the FMC along with setting an ILS frequency and course up. It doesn't work if I'm practicing some circuits without tuning an ILS.

    I always assumed based on the age and last operated time of the aircraft modelled - that there was no audible callouts generated by this particular GPWS/Rad Alt combination.

    I think the real call-outs would have been done by a Human-based aural warning unit in the right seat.

    It's possible that the logic was getting confused by the circuit flight pattern versus a 'proper' flight pattern (climb and cruise before descent and approach) so I've made some tweaks.
