[Guide] How to connect as observer?
As per VATSIM Code of Conduct, users can connect as observers using their abbreviated name, followed by the _OBS suffix.
For example, if your name is Joe Doe, your observer call sign is JD_OBS. However, it is possible that this name is already connected online; To resolve the conflict, use a third letter, representing either your middle name or one of the second letters of your first or last name, such as: JOD_OBS or JDO_OBS. Never connect using ICAO codes of some airports or with special call signs designated for VATSIM staff members.

Do not forget to delete all ATIS lines because those lines are defined for the last set control position.
