NEXGEN will it phase voice out totally?
« on: November 29, 2015, 08:36:43 AM »
 :roll:Hi

I was wondering with all this new GPS tracking flights and nav

How will this affect ATC voice communication

Back in 2000 there was a push for VDL mode 3
Digital voice from what we use know. In 2003 a test was done on the new radio system and in 2004 it was cancelled by the FAA. The airline community was not going for it!!

AM voice mode is more effective then digital voice mode as stated by the FCC

What is everyone's opinions on this subject??

So, the updated question is, how long until domestic CPDLC replaces the majority of voice comms?

CPDLC just doesn't seem practicable for replacing the majority voice comms in the domestic environment. The need for quick instruction and response just isn't satisfied by CPDLC (sending certain clearances and messages via CPDLC can be quite time consuming...just to send, not to mention the added time to read and reply). It isn't terribly slow but it isn't as fast as today's VHF. I suppose some high altitude sectors could use it well but even still, there are high altitude sectors with quite a bit of congestion where the speed of voice is absolutely necessary. And I'm still a believer in the increased awareness gained from being able to hear instructions and responses from other aircraft.
