I can get u in touch with my radio club if u want I think it was like £20 per weekend.. u are in Manchester aren't u?
The M0 is a bit different tho takes more prep and reading...
a lot of calculating and stuff.... that is the only reason I have not gotten round to it yet....

Having the licence is come in handy even here in the UK and besides that it is fun lol

So u gonna do all three right after eachother?
Thanks for the offer, I'll drop you a line nearer the time. If practical I would try and do all three in one go.

Any tips how to do it (links)? Range, reliability, setup required?

Hey mate,
Reliable as FM can be so very....
Range very depending on the equipment and power u use...
Have a read through the link Richard put on that is a good start and do some google searches on it...

I will try and find some links and put them on here....
U can just have a packet setup and use ur own email via the internet....
But it aint to cheap to setup unless u allready hav most the equipment...
anyway I will search for links in hte next few days

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
