We are currently cruising and planning to cruise
. Till now we have been using the internet
forecasts but I would prefer not rely on it. I have a SSB radio
that I hooked up to my laptop
and managed to dl some navtex and weatherfax but I find it a bit flukey and unreliable. What options are available?
I read in the cruising pilot something about GMDSS. Is that forecasts on marine VHF
? Is there a way to receive those via text on the VHF
Or is a stand alone Navtex decoder the best option?
Looking forward to any advice,
