Unable to dial a specific frequency on COM1 or COM2

Hi,

I was flying A321 yesterday and I was asked (by PF3) to dial 128.020 frequency, when I rotated the dial the frequency when from 180.015 straight to 180.025. I did the test in all the airbus 318-19-20-21 and 330 same thing.  So it's not possible to dial any .020 frequency. Is this normal or a small bug.

Hello Pierre,

This is completely normal with 8.33 kHz frequency spacing. On dial 118.015 is actually 118.0167 MHz and adding 8.33 kHz there we get 118.0250 MHz.

Here is a good document from Eurocontrol that explains 8.33 kHz spacing in extreme detail. Page 89 contains a frequency table with Dial, 25 kHz frequency and 8.33 kHz frequency:
https://www.eurocontrol.int/sites/default/files/publication/files/201707-8.33-vcs-user-handbook 1.1.pdf#page=89

So to answer this exact question, it's all as it should be.

And what simulator are you talking about?

I am running Prepard3d v5.1.12.26829

 

I also did more test with the Aerosoft CRJ and PMDG 747 and I cannot set that frequency. 

 

So I will take this issue with PF3

 

Thanks
