Question Help-Weather Fax Software with Sony ssb receiver ICF SW7600gr

I have just purchases a Sony SW receiver (ICF-SW7600GR) with the intention of downloading weather fax information to a laptop &/or ipad whichever is better.
Can anyone suggest good software which I could use to download weather fax data - preferable shareware? and what wires do I need to connect from the Sony to the Ipad. I am electronic challenged.

Re: Help-Weather Fax Software with Sony ssb receiver ICF SW7600gr

dnamron41,
Since you mentioned that you're "electronically challenged", may I suggest that you spend some time learning how all of this works, first!!

But, until then....here are the answers you asked for:

I prefer JVComm32, or Getfax....
JVComm32 - FAX SSTV RTTY SYNOP NAVTEX program

Airmail weather fax



Now that you got the quick answer to your question....please do yourself the favor of watching all of these videos and read al of these other threads and follow the links....
Doing that, you'll be good-to-go...

Please be sure to watch these videos...showing HF WeFax in operation, LIVE, in the real world, on-board a cruising boat (in port, at the dock)
