Hi everyone,

I've finally got some time to fool with this amazing simulation again.  Continued congratulations go to the developers.   Thumbs Up

I'm working my through the Apollo 7 mission and I'm wondering if the automatic SV update via the PAMFD is working.  I followed the steps in the vAGC flightplan (several times) and according to the PAMFD, the SV update worked just fine, but I saw no indication on the DSKY that the uplink was in progress or finished.  Is this normal or is there a problem?

I have attached the scenario I'm using.  The scenario starts about 1 minute before an SV update, so the entire "AUTOMATIC SV UPDATE" checklist needs to be completed.

I believe your problem may be due to the position of the "CMD RESET" switch under the group "UP TLM" on panel 3. When I loaded your scenario, I commenced an auto SV update from the PAMFD and I encountered the problem you described. I then noticed that the CMD RESET switch was in the "RESET" position (Up). I moved it to the "NORM" (center) position and then commenced an auto SV update again from the PAMFD and the DISKY was active showing the updates while running P27. So try again after moving the CMD RESET switch to it's center "NORM" position.

Happy flying

Yeah, UP TLM CMD - NORM, it's done during the post insertion telemetry config.

You must have hit the shift-key when you threw the switch -the RESET position is spring-loaded to NORMAL... Wink
