From my experience, I know exactly how to get weather
information in the Mediteranian Sea, when internet
access is not available. There is Navtex, the VHF radio
and many more ways.
I plan to cruise
on the East Coast
, the Keys and the Bahama and have no experience in this area. The boat
is equipped with VHF radio
, barometer ect. But there is no SSB
/HAM radio nor SatPhone aboard. As long as there is a mobile internet
access available, plenty of information can be accessed on the internet. But now, when leving the proximity of the coast, how can I get the required data in this area?
Is there something comparable to Navtex? Can I get the information with a SSB
radio receiver (if yes, what frequencies and any recommendation for a particular product)? Is there a service
, broadcasting meteo information over the VHF radio on a given scheddule?
Your help is verry welcome.
