If the next controller is not online, can the show text of next controller list changed to "unicom" or "122.800"?(Nothing is displayed now) This can also remind ATC.

When there's no next controller, no matter whether it's due to the aircraft's route terminating inside your sector or the aircraft leaving your sector into uncontrolled airspace, the SI item will display nothing. No plans to change this behavior.

If it is under the heavy traffic, and the airspace is very large. ATC may not immediately notice the need to tell the pilot that it is time to monitor UNICOM. If it can display 122.8, it will be easy to know in the exit list, oh! He is leaving my airspace! Isn't it?

If it is busy traffic, the airspace is very large and you don't have any SI, it will actually benefit you because the label would consume less space on the screen. Scanning is one of the key elements of ATCO. The workload should be organised the way you would transfer the aircraft the most comfortable way and I do not see any problem if you do it couple of minutes earlier-later of your AoR.

Just FYI:

  • In TopSky FINEST version, LFUNC shows black text saying "SI" until ACT message has been sent and shows next sector with blue.
  • In TopSky COOPANS version, LFUNC greyed with a text of next sector and changes color when ACT has been sent.
