Press the "normal" button on your vatsim transponder, instead of the "Standby" button. Mode C (Charlie) allows your transponder to reply to the Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR), making your dot on the radar scope bigger. It also sends your aircraft's pressure altitude and transponder code to the controllers screen.
