All the Coms are patched into the Polycon system. Not sure if they can Tx back via it.

Well of course not, that wouldn't be very popular with ATC would it?
The purpose of feeding received ATC to Polycon is so that crew do not try to speak to the pilot whilst the pilot is speaking to ATC.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

Pretty sure the ATC can be set to over ride the internal coms for just the pilot?
