Hello! 

I created FS Metar 2020 because i wanted to listen to the actual metar on my aircraft comms. All you have to do is select departure and arrival airports and then set your radio comm1 to 122.00 to listen to the departure atis or 122.10 to listen to the arrival atis. 

Installation:

All you have to to is unzip and run FSMetar.exe.  You also have to run metarconnect.exe wich is in the metarconnect folder while fs2020 is running. If you dont want to listen to the audio on comm1 you dont have to run metarconnect and just use FSMetar for metar information on airports.  

I´ll be keeping a close watch in the comments to listen to feedback and provide improvements as I continue to improve the app. 

I have long term plans in developing this app so any help from you guys is really appreciated.  You can buy me a coffee here:

Thanks a lot everyone and happy flying!

How do I get more voices?
I cannot hear the metar in my aircraft comms.

As of right now..audio is only tied to the comm1 radio.  Make sure radio is on a tuned to either 122.00 or 122.01.  If you still cannot hear anything restart the FSMetar 2020 program while fsx is running.  Also make sure to run metarconnect.exe in the metarconnect folder.

    Is it based on METARs or is based on ACTUALs from the sim... cause they are different. I am looking for an app to give me what is actually depicted.

      based on METARS not weather in the game. If your using live weather they should be the same.

    Great little app. Thank you so much.

    The in cockpit audio still works even with the radio switched off. Not a big issue but if it could be linked to the radio on/off switch that would be even better.

      Thanks Sernder46. I have it set so you can only hear if radio is on. Are you able to hear when radio has no power? (master switch off) . If so, what aircraft are you using? can you try to see if it behaves the same in cessnna 152. Tested it on this aircraft, but it should behave the same in all airplanes.

      Yes, it works correctly in the C152. In the Savage Cub, switching off the ignition stops it working but if you only switch off the radio (with the ignition still on) it still works.

      thanks for the feedback. Ill try to have it sorted in the next version.

      Oops, think I just sent this in a Report by mistake. Apologies.

      Still happening with v1.1. Don't know if it helps but the ignition and radio switching in the Savage Grravel are the same as in the Asobo Savage Cub and it works correctly with the Savage Grravel.

      Thanks for the voice settings in the update 😊

      Thanks for the info Sender46. I did some testing with the savage cub and there doesn't seem to be a simconnect variable that detects when that radio knob is in the off position..I think FS just treats it like a volume knob. Sorry about this! 😞

      The Savage Grravel mod is based on the Asobo Savage Cub so I thought there might a clue in the Savage Grravel files as to how it works correctly with that aircraft. No worries though, thanks for trying and I'm still glad to have this app 😊

      have you opened both metarconnect and fsMetar..do you have active ICAO codes? please let me know if you have further problems.

    As of right now..youll only be able to hear audio on COM 1. Working on it now to have it tied to the comm2 as well.

    hi
    to connect to fs you have to also open metarconnect.exe in metarconnect folder. Youll listen to the real world METAR from the metar info you select.

    Do I understand correctly that the mod allows you to listen to ATIS of any airport in FS2020?
    • Affenmann
      2 month(s) ago
      Metar is not ATIS. They dont tell you Airport specifics like runway in use and such.
    • franleston

      Thanks Affenmann. Yea the audio thats played is taken from the real world metar information in the app.
    • xflight

      All you have to do is select departure and arrival airports and then set your radio comm1 to 122.00 to listen to the departure atis or 122.10 to listen to the arrival atis. This is a quote from the description. I see the word ATIS twice.
