This program is a view-only program which allows users to view NOTAMs that come into the system electronically and generate Hardcopy reports, as necessary. Select the function you want from the command line by entering the appropriate initial letter.
The modes available are:
station or FIR ICAO identification code,
Number of the NOTAM you want to view.
Note: If you are unsure of the number, enter any number; if the program cannot find such a NOTAM, it will display the next available record.
Use the up and down arrows to view successive NOTAMs in the file.
Note: The program will always display the first page of each NOTAM, i.e., using the down arrow will not bring up page 2 of a NOTAM, nor will the Up arrow shift you to the last page of the previous NOTAM.
Use the <Ctrl>-F or <Ctrl>-B functions as the case requires if you want to see other pages.
Pressing <Enter> will return you to a blank screen so that you can look for another NOTAM. Entering <Q> will exit you from Video mode to the command line.
Calling up the Screen mode will bring up the report range selection screen.
Enter the Type of NOTAM you want reported: <I> for airport ICAO code or <F> for FIR.
Then, enter the range of stations you want to see.
Next, you may select whether you want a report of Operational NOTAMs, Non-Operational NOTAMs, or all NOTAMs. Note: The default value is all NOTAMs.
Finally, enter the Minimum Age and Maximum Age of NOTAMs you want reported. Note: Your report will contain only those NOTAMs which have been on the system for a length of time corresponding to the limits you specified.
When the report is brought to the screen, you can page through it by pressing <Enter>, or return to the command line by entering <Q>. Pressing <Enter> when the final page of a report is on screen will also return you to the command line.
This mode functions like the Screen mode, except that the report is directed to the system printer.
To exit this program, enter <Q> from the command line. You will be asked to enter the menu number of the next program. If you are not sure, pressing <Enter> will return you to the last used menu screen.
Note: The following descriptions represent the typical access and privileges afforded to users designated as Dispatch Managers/Supervisors. Users with dispatcher privileges will have limited access to a subset of the screens presented.
