OK I tried my weatherfax last night using the de1103 and shoving a cable from the line out of the radio
to the Microphone/line in of the computer. Then downloaded Seatty (Why some people name there programs where it can have a dirty connotation is beyond me!)
Anyway, I tried to get a fax without reading the instructions...
Finally gave in and read the help file and got the following result. You can tell I was still clicking buttons half way through!
The problem with the fax chopped in half - not the black and white, but the map itself is, I think, that I missed the very beginning of the transmition where it send a signal telling the machine whats happening.
Anyway the batteries then ran out and the DE1103 doesn't receive well when its plugged into the charger
so I had to quit for the night and go snuggle up
Anyway, the point is, you can get a weatherfax for less than $100 in any currency and this DE1103 does the job!
