Aries radio is a plugin for DCS World and Teamspeak 3 which simulates the radios in fixed wing, rotary wing and ground units as well as tower and GCI stations. Control of the airborne radios is via the controls in your click able cockpit. The following features are simulated:-

Simulation of VHF AM, VHF FM and UHF radios in most DCS aircraft.
Simulation of voice encryption capabilities of the KY58 in the A10C
Simulation of the ELT over UHF guard frequency in the event of bail out (Used to indicate bailout and provide homing for SAR)

Aries radio also simulates the limitations of each radio and aircraft such as range, line of sight, interference, modulation from oxygen mask and background noise (engine, rotors etc.)

To install download Aries from the following link. (Current version 1.976a)

Read the quick install guide in the zip and follow all of the steps found in that document. It is very easy to follow, the most important steps being to ensure that both DCS World and Teamspeak are not running and that you run the installer as administrator.

After install run Teamspeak as administrator and ensure that the plugin has loaded by checking for it's entry under plugins on the settings menu. Last thing to do after install is configure you keys for use with Aries. Run the Aries DCS World Configurator tool as administrator and make sure to bind keys or buttons for select radio boxes 1-3, common PTT and pop/hide radio GUI. The select radio boxes buttons are used to select a radio (1 = VHF AM, 2 = UHF, 3 = VHF FM), common PTT is to transmit and the pop/hide GUI is used to check the status of your radios.

Last thing to do is on starting up DCS World for the first time go to the options and uncheck the full screen option. The game will still run in full screen however windows can now be placed on top of the game window which is required for the radio GUI to work. I would recommend hiding the GUI however on entering your aircraft as it's not needed if you have an aircraft with a click able cockpit.
