- Hand Microphone – completely with push-to-talk button on the side, just like with real radio communication devices!
- Built-In speaker with separate volume control
- Headset Connector for standard 3,5 mm headsets, with separate output audio volume control (headset not included)
- Dimmable Backlight using ultra-bright white LEDs behind a laser-engraved high quality front panel
- USB 3.0 connector used both for data and electrical supply – no external power supply needed!
The PTT hand microphone, the built-in speaker and an additional headset can be used at the same time!
- During phases of limited workload (e.g. while flying enroute or controlling an ATC sector with little traffic), you can enjoy the comfort and freedom of an easy-to-use hand microphone – there is no need to keep your headset on all the time, and even if you leave your desk for a minute you won’t miss any important calls on your active frequency
- When workload get’s higher (e.g. when starting your approach or as more and more traffic enters your sector), just put on your headset and toggle the microphone selector switch – immediately, you have both of your hands free for flying or radar scope handling!

We have developed a small software tool to enable mapping of the ATCBox input buttons to any keyboard command – it is effectively a tool to simulate keyboard inputs from any joystick or gamepad device.
