ADF ident sound bug

Is there any way to turn off or otherwise disable the ADF Morse identifier, other than tuning away from the station? It's been nearly a year since this bug was reported.

Is that really a bug or bad knowledge of materiel? :wink:

The sound is easily disabled by the switch on the picture. When down, the audio ident will be off.

Thank you. Unfortunately, the switch you have circled does not turn off the audio ident for me.

I see that in your picture, the green light to the lower right side of the switch is not illuminated. I believe this light is activated by the "ADF Power" switch (switch #40 on page 20 of the user manual). I find when switch #40 is turned on, and the green light is then illuminated, that the switch you have circled has no effect.

I also see that the switch you have circled is noted on page 23 of the use manual as "a1. Telefone\Telegraf switch (inop)", which i take to mean as "inoperative"

Yes, the screenshot was made with the power turned off, but I have checked what I was stating just before making my post — it turned off the ident sound. I believe that "inop" refers to the telegraph mode, not the telephone, because "telephone" is the direct transcript of the word for headphone in Russian.

I must apologize. For some reason, it really doesn't affect the sound ident. Cannot understand, why did it work for me previously...

If you check the code in the model, you will see there is no way to turn off the Ident. The code loops the ident on/off variable on then off repeatedly.

Not sure you will get anywhere with support. This is a very long standing problem reported just after the release of the product and ignored ever since.

I may have stumbled across an inelegant workaround. Perhaps a few other users can test. In the FSX menu, I selected Options | Settings | Sound, then I unchecked the "Cockpit" box. I've found that the ADF sound is completely disabled, but at least I can leave the ADF radio tuned to a station without a continuing Morse ident sound. So far, no other cockpit sounds seem to be missing.

Hi all-having a great time flying this 'bird' but this ADF Sound Bug is a real pain.
All in all it's a great flight sim with a Garmin and Autopilot but that constant noise-what a drag.
Must be a way of stopping it!
Seemed to disappear during a long flight for some reason.
Can we fix this and complete a great piece of work!

While still not solved, I simply copied backed up the ADF soundfile and edited the original to be 50% of its default volume level.
That way it's still to be heard, but way more bearable.
