WEFAX / RTTY Audio Samples

I am having a hard time tuning into stations that broadcast Weather faxes on my HAM radio but have the appropriate software on my computer to receive weather faxes. I would like to try it out without actually rx'ing. Does anyone know where I could find samples of WeFax or Rtty broadcasts (either wav or aiff) online? I am looking for both graphical and text based broadcasts.

Don't forget, most weatherfax frequencies are listed as assigned frequencies, not carrier frequencies. Therefore, you must tune to 1.9Khz below the listed assigned frequency.

I am now away from the boat and radio and still trying to figure out my jvcomm and seaTTy software. I am realizing that the links above are just short little samples of a broadcasts. Does anyone have a link or a recording of an entire WeFax or RTTY weather transmission.

My idea is that I will dump it on my ipod and play it back into my sound card.

Let me rephrase the question, would anyone like to record an entire broadcast of a weatherfax and post it somewhere so that I and others might test out our decoding software? It would be very helful to a few people I am sure.

Even when I was living aboard with the HAM mere inches away I always had a hard time getting broadcasts because we were in a sea of masts that interfered badly with our reception. We would have to mess with it during day sails and that wasn't any fun. I am sure I am not the only one who suffers from this problem.

It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
