Matt,

As you are going inland have got ATIS ie; Automatic Transmitter Identification System. Mike C pointed this out to me as we will be going through the Kiel Canal. I had only just applied for my VHF licence so I have sent Ofcom an email requesting this is added to my licence and a number is allocated. I understand all new VHF radios are ATIS ready. I also understand that if one is planning an inland water cruise on the continent this is now compulsory. Old radios with DSC can be modified to take the ATIS facility.

Hi Andre
Yes, I got my ATIS sorted earlier this year. OFCOM don't actually add it to your license, they just issue a notice of variation (see attached), as you can see they just add a 9 in front of your mmsi number.

I'm not sure that all new radios come ATIS ready, probably depends where you buy it, it's actually illegal to use ATIS in UK waters. I bought a new Icom radio late last year, I've had to send it away recently to have ATIS enabled on it. It only cost 20 to have done.

No doubt you already have been, but my advice is to do your homework on rules and regulations, inland waterways have a huge amount of legislation. Don't forget your ICC and CEVNI

Matt , well done, I understand that is has become compulsory since 2009 so I have now written to Ofcom so they can issue a notice of variation. as we are going to go via the Kiel Canal best to be within the law.

Andre, I applied to OFCOM for my Notice of Variation by email on a Sunday and received it back by return of email on the following Monday. Apparently, it then takes up to a month for the ATIS number to be registered on the central Brussels database which is updated monthly. Remember also that you need to carry with you a complete copy (all 32 pages) of the Basel Agreement (downloadable from: http://www.rainwat.bipt.be/rainboat.html although you might want to get rid of the 'tracked changes' before printing it out) and carry a copy of the CEVNI Regulations. As well as the other bureaucratic paperwork. All in an open boat!
David

Weather

I hope the weather stays in its current form for your adventures to Paris. A little chilly for camping but lovely in the daytimes for making long passages.
