0022:01 [New York ARTCC] atlantic's on

0022:02 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] i got a question for you

0022:03 [New York ARTCC] whatta you got

0022:04 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] actually lemme uhm i'm gonna flash this guy to you please don't take the handoff he's too far away

0022:08 [New York ARTCC] *(yes)

0022:09 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] northeast of hampton that navy alfa tango four fifty

0022:11 [New York ARTCC] navy alfa tango four fifty i've got a ticket on him

0022:14 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] alright he wants to go to bergh i'm flashing at ya now just so you can actually he's flashing at ah eighty six let's try this - no he's not flashing at-ya-forget it anyway he's north of hampton he wants to go direct to bergh he's at twenty thousand if he doesn't go there he's primary only i still got him down the airway i don't know how that's gonna conflict with your kennedy departures trying to climb above him

0022:33 [New York ARTCC] he's primary only i can't i really can't ah work him primary only in that corridor there that's gonna be a problem

0022:38 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] so just tell him well his routing is bergh and then i guess he's doing some air work at bergh

0022:42 [New York ARTCC] yeah i mean i can take him direct bergh is he gonna go operational at bergh do you know

0022:45 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] ah lemme check with him and ask iii think he is

0022:49 [New York ARTCC] if he's gonna go v f r that's not a problem then but ah working him IFR that'd be a problem without a transponder

0022:54 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] okay so tell him if he's gonna go VFR you can work him if he's not then you cannot take him that way

0022:59 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] yeah pretty much

0023:00 [Boston ARTCC Sardi Sector, Radar Position] see like at all like even direct to bergh or even down jet one twenty one amber three hundred
