Re: HF Weather Fax iPhone/iPad app

Chuck, it will prob be easier to find an adapter that convers your 1/8" plug to 1/4". In fact, my irig came with one.

Re: HF Weather Fax iPhone/iPad app

Thanks for the reply. I have the iRig in my hand but as I asked in my earlier note from months ago I need a cable from the iRig to the radio. m802 uses a 1/8" plug and the iRig uses a 1/4" plug. I do not have an extra cable in hand and will need to purchase one. iRig plugs into the ipad .....

Re: HF Weather Fax iPhone/iPad app

As the cruising years have gone by I have concluded grib type weather files are convenient but frequently inaccurate. Especially when a front is approaching. So I have purchased HF Fax. I have been putting my IPAD near the Sideband while it is transmitting the WX Faxes but had limited success. I am using a older Kenwood TS 430S and a New IPAD. I see on the forum a fair bit of talk about a KV connection cable and some other cables. I would ordinarily go right to Amazon and click the buy button on the one that seems best. Problem is I am currently cruising in New Zealand. Shipping costs are prohibitive. So I wonder if somebody has any idea how I could come by a cable here in NZ or if there is a better app. or any suggestions at all. Cheers

Philosophy try this out, its from Ali Express probably free shipping to NZ. I am headed back to my boat in Tauranga in March and I am going to buy one.
