(read: at sea, out of Internet
access) in European waters, my main source of mid-term weather
information is the RTTY broadcast on SSB
(long, medium and shortwave) from German Weather Service
in Offenbach/Pinneberg near Hamburg. It can be received by a number of programs (I know only Windows), such as JVComm32, MeteoScan, SeaTTY...
Since a long time I was nursing an idea to make a plugin for this, but Thomas' example triggered me to make a simple prototype in Python today. I attach a sample receive transcript for the North Sea, as well as a chart of their coverage.
It is still a prototype, because it does not handle any error recovery on garbled messages, which sometimes are correct just in the parts
that are needed... I think a real solution must come as plugin.
Just a preview.
PS. I could use more space in the Description Field again, maybe at the expense of Icons... ?
