POSITIONS Definition

We are going to explain in details the different parameters of a POSITIONS line:

Example:

GMMM_CTR:CASABLANCA CONTROL OCEANIC:124.500:GMMMO:C:GMMO:CTR:-:-:4201:4277[:VIS center1 latitude:VIS center1 longitude[: ... ]]
  • First parameter
    The first parameter is there only to remember you the usage of the line. It can be anything and does not affect any function. As you can see, I used the same name for different lines.
  • Second parameter
    The second parameter is the radio call sign, generally the official radiotelephony call sign to be used with that station.
  • Third parameter
    The primary frequency of the station.
  • Fourth parameter
    The fourth parameter is the identifier. It can be one character long or as long as you want. We use a five characters length one to make reading easier.
  • Fifth parameter
    This parameter is the character to be displayed in VRC or ASRC for identifying the controller. EuroScope does not use it since the tracking controller is displayed in the detailed tag.
  • Sixth parameter
    The first part of the call sign. This parameter is used to identify the position.
  • Seventh parameter
    The suffix of the call sign. It is used in combination with the previous parameter. So, for the line of Casablanca Oceanic Control, it will be GMMO_CTR. That identifier is used by EuroScope in simulation mode for the simulated controllers.
  • Eighth and ninth parameters
    Not used.
  • Tenth parameter
    Start of code squawk range used for that position.
  • Eleventh parameter
    End of code squawk range used for that position.
  • Twelfth and thirteenth parameter
    Latitude and longitude of the first (optional) visibility centre.
    There can be up to four visibility centres, that means up to eight optional parameters.
