Hi Andy,

Might seem like a stupid question but what do you mean by bunching up the cables.

Regards Nick R.

Seperating the ignition/engine control cables and cable tying these and channeling these bunched cables away from everything else.

In my case the coax was in close contact with the feed to the Tacho (electrical pulses from the ignition circuit) and it was this that was causing the interferance. I only moved them apart less that 6" and it sorted the problem.

You planning a sub 5m trip across to France then Nick?

Andy

Barry,

I have tried the £7.95 suppressor and I'm not too sure of the results.

I don't really have anybody to talk to on it. I'm the only one of my crowd with the necessary licence. I use the radio mainly with safety in mind.

When I am listening to Solent Coastguard the reception is perfect. Some of the other calls, but not all of them still have a high pitched whine in the background.

I still need to do some work on it. It doesn't help that I can't even hear the radio over the sound of the engine or wind.

What I will say is that the Halfords bit of kit is in no way marinised. I don't give it much life if it gets wet or moist.

I really need to do some more research but then i need somebody with a radio to try it out.

Sorry,

Nick R.

Andy,

I'd like to do the sub 5m to France this summer. But legally I don't think I can satisfy the French requirements. I need to talk about this with my friends and see if the Channel islands is more appropiate.

I have done a little bit of planning with a view to landing at La Bretogne. But what I might do is aim for the channel Islands, refuel and then do a quick invasion of France before beating a hasty retreat.

Nick, don't you need RYA, VHF, Insurance details for any kind of trip to "mainland Europe" inc of Ireland and Channel Islands of course.

That would count against me as I'm not RYA trained. This would surly have implications for a cruise if the unmentionable happened and you where rescued by French Air Sea Recuce for example.

Good luck with your planning though and if you want to test you VHF out PM me next time your down in this area.

Andy

Nick, which bit(s) of paper don't you have?

You should have:
SSR for boat
Valid certificate of insurance
ICC
Passport
(E111)
Ship radio licence (if fitted)
VHF operator's licence
if your boat(s) is/are old then you probably won't need original invoice(s)

The French aren't usually too officious - I've been on trips without any of the above without a problem, although I wouldn't necessarily recommend it! There isn't a cordon of Gendarmes around each port
