Weather Facsimile Software

Turn your computer into a weather forecasting station with marine weather fax software and a marine single sideband (SSB) or other high frequency radio receiver.

Weather fax transmissions are similar to fax transmissions you receive via the telephone.  Instead of using phone lines, a weather station broadcasts weather fax charts over marine SSB frequencies.  Weather fax software packages allow sailors to connect a computer's serial port to the audio output of a SSB receiver to collect and decode the broadcast information automatically.  The fax "pages" can then be viewed on the computer screen or printed on a printer.

Weather fax charts do NOT make a weather forecast for you--they provide the weather data necessary for YOU to do so.  If you're not sure how to interpret weather fax charts, learn more about marine weather with books and software.
