Re: What do I need from the sat phone to the computer?

Becca,

Since you mentioned having a marine SSB radio without a Pactor modem, in case you don't already know; you can use very economical software on a tablet/smart phone to receive weather fax, NAVTEX, etc. as a back-up to your sat phone set-up.

From the Tablet/Weather section of our Computers, Devices, and Applications page:

Quote:
Black Cat Systems Software we use:
  • NAVTEX
  • HF FAX
    Both of the above are back-up app for interpreting radio transmissions if our packet radio modem failed. See our Marine SSB & HAM Radio page for more info.
  • Weather Calc [Useful calculations and conversions]
  • SWBC Sched [World wide shortwave radio broadcast schedule; e.g., news, weather, etc.]
[Sorry, all the links fell off when I pasted the above from our blog... see above linked page for those details.]

In case this is of interest.

Cheers!

Bill
