Indeed. Thanks for the rant.
Talk less, navigate more.
Doesn’t work I’m afraid. Not being aware of limitations to navigational performance combined with being non-radio has caused large issues.
And people always think if there’s a voice to talk to, then the “controller will sort it out”, and to be fair, in many other countries, they do.
So you say you don't agree with me only to suggest that people should not rely on a voice to sort them out.
I am too simple to understand your logic there.
To go from one station 'providing' a basic service, to the next on such a short cross country in a very congested part of the country is just adding to the workload for no notable benefit - QED.
Plot your course, fly the headings, follow the line you set out in the comfort of a chair and a table without any pressure is very easy and very stress-free.
By all means tune into London Info 'just in case' and if you must ask them for a basic service but I would not even bother with that.
It would have made the journey stress free and likely infringement free too.
If it needs to be called TEM then so be it, I call it, making life easy.
