For the server you need to open UDP and TCP port 5002 unless you've changed the server port using the server config file.

To update just run the installer which'll replace any previous version installed automatically

.NET version 4.6.2 Required - PLEASE INSTALL THIS - https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=53345

If you're on Windows N edition (No media components installed) then install this (you'll know when you get the audio initialisation error!) - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3145500/media-feature-pack-list-for-windows-n-editions

KNOWN BUG: If you get lag while using the radio, press L Ctrl + L Shift + L to fix. This is a DCS bug i'm trying to work around and triggered by pressing L Ctrl + L. It doesnt matter if that key is bound or not, it'll still cause lag when you press it


  • Changed method for saving and loading input and output settings. Settings will be reset on first load!
  • Added support for in-cockpit channels on most NON FC3 aircraft:
  • Added support for channels loaded from files for ALL FC3 aircraft and expansion radios
  • Added Help & Info section
  • Changed installer to make sure favourites & fixed channels are not overrwritten
  • Added hotkey for FC3 & Expansion radios for switching channels
  • Added extra buttons for +/- 0.001 MHz
  • KNOWN BUG: If you get lag while using the radio, press L Ctrl + L Shift + L to fix. You can also not use the In Game DCS overlay to stop it as well (either hide entirely or delete the DCS-SRS-OverlayGameGUI.lua )
  • Separated out settings for Radio Tx and Rx Effects. You will need to turn these back on

Banned IPs are added to a file created where ever the server is run called banned.txt. To unban, just delete the IP from the file and restart the server.

You now also need the files below in Saved Games\DCS\Scripts if you are installing manually

  • DCS-SRSGameGUI.lua
  • DCS-SimpleRadioStandalone.lua
  • DCS-SRS-Overlay.dlg
  • DCS-SRS-OverlayGameGUI.lua

Overlay & Overlay Configuration

The overlay has 3 states, hidden, small & full that you can see by pressing Left Control + Left Shift + Escape by default.

The Full state has a title bar that you can click and drag the window around with. The window position will be saved for when DCS is next opened.

The radio status is removed after 5 seconds if SRS is closed or loses server connection

To configure the overlay hotkey, run DCS once to create a config file in Saved Games\DCS\Config which will look something like so and quit DCS:

config = 
    ["mode"] = "minimum",
    ["hotkey"] = "Ctrl+Shift+escape",
    ["windowPosition"] = 
        ["y"] = 342,
        ["x"] = 981,
    }, -- end of ["windowPosition"]
} -- end of config

Edit the "Hotkey" section and add the characters from the keyboard you'd like to use instead. i.e

config = 
    ["mode"] = "minimum",
    ["hotkey"] = "Ctrl+Shift+1", -- now uses the combination of ctrl shift and 1 together to toggle
    ["windowPosition"] = 
        ["y"] = 342,
        ["x"] = 981,
    }, -- end of ["windowPosition"]
} -- end of config

Fixed Channels

Fixed channels can be created for all FC3 aircraft and all expansion radios for Non FC3.

Channel presets are created per Radio - full list of names & frequencies here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tzd996zJ1t0heZ-t1PpL7vNUIZbXl7pI6De0GThN1Qw/edit#gid=1869108790 )

Preset files are named after the radio (no special characters needed & case is ignored) and are text files with a single frequency on each line.

For example, to create a fixed channel list for the first UHF radio in the F15C:

Create a file called ANARC-164 UHF1.txt or anarc164 UHF1.txt where you installed SimpleRadio Standalone (where the client exe is), add frequencies and save. Example also attached

The file will be automatically loaded when that radio appears on an aircraft. The frequency list can also be manually reloaded with the reload button
