Bracknell images overlay

When I canít use Wi-Fi to get Bracknell weather images I use a small receiver (Target HF3) for that.
Is there a possibility to overlay those images over the chart as it is done with the Bracknell image from the internet?

Those are the charts with surface pressure lines. There are several types e.g. Bracknell, Hirlam, ECMW and GM.

Here is an example ... The value of such a chart is deemed better than a rendered GRIB file because the data has been analyzed and interpreted by professional meteorologists.

I think I have found the possibility of receiving the HF-fax charts in the WeatherFax plugin.
I will try it as soon as Northwood/UK and Hamburg/Pinneberg are transmitting.
