Tacan Radio navigation events

Unless I’m missing something are the Tacan event id’s missing from the SDK
documentation? I’m trying to find the variable names for setting the different
digits and x-y of the TACAN channel. Also, TACAN ACTIVE MODE:index is a bool,
what does the bool represent? as id expected that TACAN ACTIVE MODE:index
should of been an Enum with off-rec-T/R-… but as its a bool obviously not

Hi! A tacan can be defined by a channel (from 1 to 126) and a mode (X or Y)
which leads to 252 possibilities. - The : index represents the physical
radio defined in the systems.cfg of your aircraft. Whether your needs you can
have one or two tacans radio. So the index should be :1 or :2. -
TACAN_ACTIVE_MODE is a bool because it represent the TACAN MODE ,
so i’ts false for X and true for Y. - TACAN_ACTIVE_CHANNEL is a
number between 1 and 126 So to properly define a TACAN you need to set
the channel and the mode with their corresponding keys . Off,
Receiver, T/R reception modes are not handled by keys, you have to define your
logic on your side depending on what the player selects. Don’t hesitate if you
have other questions :slight_smile:

Yes, what I’m trying to do is find the corresponding keys. I expected the
equivalent of the ADF_10_DEC event id would exist for TACAN but I can’t find
any reference to it in the SDK. Also none of the TACAN simvars are settable
for incrementing the simvar also doesn’t seem to be an option

The TACAN keys are currently being added to the documentation, they should be
there soon. Please find a list of all the tacan related keys :

KEY_TACAN1_ACTIVE_CHANNEL_SET number 1 to 126
KEY_TACAN1_ACTIVE_MODE_SET boolean false for X, true for Y
KEY_TACAN1_STANDBY_CHANNEL_SET number 1 to 126
KEY_TACAN1_STANDBY_MODE_SET boolean false for X, true for Y
KEY_TACAN1_SWAP no unit swap between active and standby
KEY_TACAN1_VOLUME_DEC no unit decrease by 0.02
KEY_TACAN1_VOLUME_INC no unit increase by 0.02
KEY_TACAN1_VOLUME_SET number 0 to 1
KEY_TACAN2_ACTIVE_CHANNEL_SET number 1 to 126
KEY_TACAN2_ACTIVE_MODE_SET boolean false for X, true for Y
KEY_TACAN2_STANDBY_CHANNEL_SET number 1 to 126
KEY_TACAN2_STANDBY_MODE_SET boolean false for X, true for Y
KEY_TACAN2_SWAP no unit swap between active and standby
KEY_TACAN2_VOLUME_DEC no unit decrease by 0.02
KEY_TACAN2_VOLUME_INC no unit increase by 0.02
KEY_TACAN2_VOLUME_SET number 0 to 1

Thank you very much, thats perfect!
