This is a new boat for me and I found also the xaxero weatherfax 2000 demodulator it has RS232
on one end and mono jack on the other.
The new ones are USB.
I did try it with the weatherfax software and it recognize it on com 4 but still can get the fax!
A much better bet would be to fork out for a Pactor Modem
. See SCS - the PACTOR creators - controller
Then with the free Airmail/Getfax software Airmail Downloads
you can send/receive emails as well as obtaining high quality fax from direct digital connection. Sailmail offers a world wide email service
by non-profit making annual subscription. Winlink similar & free but you need to be a Radio
My set-up allows me to turn on/off radio
, auto-select frequency according to propagation & tune radio directly from software on my laptop. The GetFax application associated with Airmail is pre-configured with all the Fax stations world wide.
You have a great rig - why not use it's full potential?
