There is. I was using it whilst trying to solve my comms problems. Just
put the cursor in the slot on the pilot's popup window, type and press
enter. It must work 'cos I got answers on screen, complete with warning
(and frightening) beeps.
There must be a faster way to text. At least in the Controller software you can double click a user (controller or pilot) and get up a chat box. Maybe we should ask the same flexibility for pilots.

The 4.03 client still has text messaging, bring it up using
Shift-Tab and in the box next to the frequency half way down you
can use the .msg <callsign> format to send your message.

This defaulting to Mute is something I've had from time to

your mike clicks so at least you know that part is working
I'll pass that on to Grant and let him decide if your
problem negates the point count. Hopefully not.
Thanks Bones, I understand the voice module is only a
temporary solution so not worth shouting about. I just hope
that when the new all-singing all-dancing pilot client arrives
it has a facility for passing emergency text messages for
if/when the voice bit fails.
