  1. Radio ???

    So can you explain why you quoted me with that comment? Where did I say anything about licences.
  2. Radio ???

    Where did I say anything about that, I still don’t understand you comment?
  3. Radio ???

    I have no idea what that comment means, did you post on the correct forum!
  4. Radio ???

    All PMR radios are limited to the same power, but that should be plenty to communicate between 2 boats travelling together I would have thought. If you were using VHF to communicate between the 2 boats you would want to use 1 watt mode anyway, transmitting at 20 watts to a boat close by would not make sense.

    You can get PMR base stations like this https://www.onedirect.co.uk/midland/midland-gb1?fee=7&fep=107085&gclid=CjwKCAiAmb7RBRATEiwA7kS8VNRZNuBC0K-WyLki_wWSm7Qy-rWx30BkrehIHecpjwi7ixxz3M53gxoCcsQQAvD_BwE a bit pricey though compared to the PMR handhelds.
  6. Holed up on the Coventry today

    Thanks I had forgotten about that, looks like I will need to go check the boat tomorrow then.
  7. Holed up on the Coventry today

    We were in the centre of Birmingham yesterday, cold but fine but this morning in Solihull is a different matter, at least 6 inches of snow and still falling. Back garden right now. Anyone know what it’s like around Napton, wondering about the boat.

    I actually quite like Fort William, but I agree it’s the midge capital of Scotland.
  9. Wolverhampton Locks

    It wasn't me that dropped it, I was steering the boat!

    Quite, centre of Birmingham is an obvious stop if you want to do it in the minimum time. From centre of Birmingham an easy 6 hours will get you to Hockley Heath.

    If you don’t have an anti-vandal key then make certain you get more than one, they are easily dropped into a lock!
  12. University pay

    Surely that is a matter between them and their employer, and unrelated to student loans.
  13. Tesco's Reading

    Interesting observation, over to the legal bods......
  14. Freelance work for live-aboards

    I don't think it really matter exactly what, it is just that software is an area where you don't tend to have a lot of direct contact with others given the global nature, and therefore it you have decent internet access you can work from anywhere.
