Recently I havve tried using a headset and mic when flying on line, but not with much success.
Poor sound quality (ie. lots of noise) seemed to be the order of the day.
Does or has anybody out there used this function and if so, have you had any luck with it? (ie. got it to work!)
Advice, tips, encouragement, whatever are all welcome.

Are you using TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, the in-game voice communication - or perhaps something else ?
As far as I know the in-game voice communication will not provide the best sound quality.
Most online Pacific Fighter gamers will use either TeamSpeak or Ventrilo.

If the sound quality problem is caused by your hardware (headset/microphone) you may need a new headset. Suggestions here:

If you mean the built-in radio channels in IL2 software, the answer is yes and yes. It took some time to troubleshoot and sound quality is not perfect either (usually some parts of the messages may be garbled and need to be re-transmitted by the sender), but it is easy to use, readily available for everyone and gets recorded on the tracks (very funny).
