Pretend you’re air traffic controlling, having a good time creating patterns, when the UPS guy comes to your door. With IF, you’d need to give up your ATC slot to someone. With this new feature request, you’d be able to answer the door without having to give up your ATC slot and that beautiful approach pattern. I call it “Temporary Disconnect”. What happens is that it will terminate your ATC without taking you off the ATC list, and after you’re done signing that package, you can resume your play.
If I didn’t include in this paragraph, the first post would be, “Trolls would abuse it and lock frequencies with their name for weeks.” However, a timer for ten minutes would be coded into Temporary Disconnect. After ten minutes, if you didn’t unlock Temporary Disconnect, you’d be disconnected from ATC and disallowed for sixty minutes.
Thoughts about this are appreciated. If anyone doesn’t understand a certain concept, also ask about it.
