Would like to come back to ZLA

Sat Apr 16, 2016 7:07 pm

Hi all. I'm MH. Probably no one around here still remembers me. I started back in 1999 when VATSIM didn't exist and it was SATCO. I used to be a C3 and an instructor around here, but that was like 10+ years ago. I came back around a couple of times over the years but just didn't quite get the ole hamster wheel spinning.

My oldest daughter flew back up to college today and I was following her flight on FLIGHTAWARE and listening on LIVEATC. It really made me want to plug in and work! But alas, my status is long inactive and I'm sure that there are quite a few new hoops to jump through.

I am currently on VATSIM.net and looking at the client software. What is everyone using now?

I am also having a rough time logging into VATSIM. My CID is 812757, but I can't remember my damn password. Will look for a reset. I updated my controller info with ZLA. Who do I contact to get my inactive status changed?

Thanks all and I look forward to working the scopes sometime in the near future...
Be safe!

Your VATSIM CID itself is still active, so that's one step down.

Do you still have access to the @haleforensics.com e-mail you used to register for VATSIM? If so, go here, enter your CID in the first box, hit Lookup. Instructions at the top explain how to obtain your password.

What is the recommended radar client? I'd be happy running ASRC, but I don't wanna be that guy...

Hale! Holy crap. VRC is the current client. It's a breeze compared to ASRC

Hey Brad and Shawn!

Okay. Got VRC all fired back up. It was cool to see that all my old settings are still active! Now I just gotta remember how it all works... Definitely a perishable skill set, but hoping it will be like riding a bike once I scrape some rust off. Right now I'm trying to get the voice/radios set up so I can hear the controllers who are plugged in.

All set up. I think.

I need to get reactivated and hook up with an instructor to work on getting my certs back up... Any takers?

Mike, send an email to Ethan (ATMatLaartcc.org) he can take care of re-activating you. There is a whole new calendar for training requests and stuff like that. It's pretty simple to figure out though.

I'm still searching for the quotes thread. I know that one of them I found from someone's .sig had me in tears after not having seen it in years.

Classic stuff.
