You do not need to 'broadcast' your message, you can message just the pilot who you may impact using the familiar ".msg <callsign>" (without the quotes) in the message bar of the IVaP window. Paul Paul, I guess the TCAS would also show any nearby traffic. I need to look up and add the .MSG function to my notes, thanks. Frank T.
