Radio Blues
« on: May 23, 2021, 12:17:27 PM »
As hard as I try I cannot send  text message to a player in another country.  in the ALL radio I enter ".radio 1 JoeBlow" but it never shows up in message grid. (JoeBlow is a fictitious name) and I don't use quote marks. I have read the manual and followed it but with no success.

Thanks

Cross country text has been disabled for over a year. You can chat via Vox using the channels in the 200 series.

Channel 200 is the de facto open channel all sides can chat on.  You just can't send private chat messages across countries anymore.  You and your buddy can use a private channel (channels 201-299) to talk but anyone else will be able to tune to that channel as well.

200 is the normal cross country channel everyone uses. The other channels 100+ are usually agreed on by the players involved. So if you want to chat with a player you would have to ask him to tune 2XX and hope he/she was tuned on 200 to hear you and then change.
