Quick point about ATIS, common practise for foreigners seems to be to get registered for it with Ofcom so you've got paperwork for it (we know how they like paperwork over there) but not to have your radio actually set up for it.
Personally I didn't like the idea of sending my radio away and paying to have it modified, then broadcasting weird noises every time I spoke for the rest of the life of the radio. And since I intend to avoid vhf conversations with frenchmen as much if not more than dead floating cows in the river, I think I'll be taking this option
