COMM radios work when powered off
I'd like to report an issue I have encountered quite a few times now:
- turn on a VHF COMM radio;
- tune in an active ATC or ATIS frequency;
- turn off the radio;
- you will still get voice notifications.
Sometimes you hear ATIS or ATC communications right from the start even though the aircraft is cold and dark. Apparently this happens when default or saved COMM frequency is active in the area.
I noticed this last night after completing a flight on the vatsim network and shutting down. I had just powered everything off and I continued to hear radio comms come through but this may be unique to the vatsim network (which I am new to) rather than the 146.
I get this without VATSIM
@grue, I’ve noticed it when starting in the ‘Cold & Dark’ state with no VHF Comms switched on.
