Grib files for Mariners transmitted by Outernet L-Band Satellite

Outernet is testing a L-Band satellite service over Inmarsat satellites. They are looking for Ideas on the best way to send Grib files. I know we already have the Grib file plug in for Opencpn so If this could be combined with the RTL-SDR dongle plugin and people put a simple four inch Satellite dish and diy receiver kit, next to their solar panels they can now receive grib files from space. Please head over to their forum if you have any ideas to add on the best way for them to do it.
