“Most VORs are equipped for voice transmission on the VOR frequency. VORs without voice capability are indicated by the letter “W” (without voice) included in the class designator (VORW).”

I assume the same thing applies to VORTACs.

  • $\begingroup$ It applies the same to VORTAC, the VOR portion has no voice channel, the DME portion is not concerned. $\endgroup$
