can’t I open a datatag on a target squawking 1200 “V”?
A. Because you don’t really know who he is until you radar identify him.
Q. How do I radar identify an aircraft?
A. 1) Type the CALLSIGN+ to radioselect the aircraft. 2) press <F9>+ to assign a beacon code. 3) Read the beacon code from the RA. 4) Assign the beacon code to the aircraft. 5) He will tag up as soon as he sets his transponder to the assigned code.

Q. How can I perform functions on aircraft that have not yet been radar identified, or who do not have open datatags?
