Satellite Weather Offshore?


I was interested in any information that you all may have on XM/Sirius, or otherwise, and if their services extend out to sea.

thanks and all the best cheer,

Satellite radio might be useful in coastal North American waters, but I certainly wouldn’t count on it for any distance offshore.

See Sirius vs XM, the coverage footprints (2006):
