Problem with ADF in P3D Version 5

Postby woody1936 » Thu Aug 27, 2020 6:12 am

It appears that not all NDBs can be tuned in version 5. At larger (international) airports the NDB frequency can be tuned on the ADF without problems, but it seems that the NDB at some regional airports cannot be tuned. For example, Brisbane YBBN is fine, NDB 302 can be tuned and activates the RMI and audio. But Hervey Bay (NDB 200) and Bundaberg (NDB 266) will not operate. There is no
RMI activation nor audio.

I have not tried every airport in P3D, but enough to know that something is wrong. All the airports that are not working worked in earlier versions of P3D.

This problem applies to default aircraft as well as third party add-ons.

P3D version 5 was only purchased on 21 August, and I believe it has hotfixes included

"Bundaberg (NDB 266) will not operate"

Are you using Old navdata?

Example :
Bundaberg , try 302

I have realized that recently Air Services Australia have begun de-commissioning many NDBs and some VORs. Because my navaid information was based on when I last installed the previous version of P3D, some NDBs are not there anymore. However, Bundaberg YBUD, for example, has had its NDB frequency changed from 200 in my previous version to 302 in V5. What my problem is (apart from losing a lot of NDBs which I love using), is that my aircraft do not accept the NDB signal. There is no indication that the NDB is working, there is no morse code identifying audio nor is there any indication from the RMI that the signal is being received.
