Northwood HF Radio Facsimile Broadcasts

I am attaching a copy of their schedule but it doesnít agree with what Iím getting, does anyone know where to get an up to date Schedule? one website said the Met Office in the U.K. now transmit this I contacted them and they didnít seem to think so!

one of the transmissions is the schedule itself, listed on your schedule at 0100 and 1300. Just keep the receiver running, and you should receive the schedule too. Whether that schedule will be any better than what you have is the next question :-)

Re: Northwood HF Radio Facsimile Broadcasts

I have used Northwood quite a bit lately. The available schedule is not 100% ,but close enough to use (depending on your equipment). I was mostly interested in the srfc analysis and fcsts.
The transmissions typically started a few minutes early, and I never found the 120 h fcst.

I never got around to it, but I suspect that the answer to your question is to (try to) have look at the 0100/1300 transmission "Schedule".

Re: Northwood HF Radio Facsimile Broadcasts

Yes I have tried to listen to their schedule at 1.00/13.00 but it never seems to come on it maybe that the propagation is not good each time Iím listening but Iíve now tried on quite a few occasions so beginning to doubt that hence my interest in getting to the source so far Iíve been directed to the Met Office but it doesnít seem to be them?
Thanks for your input.
