Hi there, I was wondering if someone could help me on this topic.
Last august/september 2020 we took our SV from Corfu to Catania, Sicily
and then from Sicily
to Cagliari Sardegna. I subscribed with PredictWind for the weather
planning and off we went. The weather forecast
was correct for the first 24 hours but after that we were caught up in a couple of unpleasant gales (of course always at night time!!)
we lost Internet
signal pretty much at the beginning of the second day of each passage
and our only source of info was the Vhf
announcing on Channel 16 the time of the new weather forecast
and the channels to switch our radio
Every time we tried to redirect to the channels mentioned we couldn't hear a thing(even if i switched on HI) so we carry on sailing keeping our bearings without any updated weather information. I would like to know where to start looking to correct this problem. Is it my Vhf antenna
? what is the best/low budget
correction I can apply to my navigational instruments to be able to follow the weather forecast updates.
thanks for your help ,
