USCG Seeks Comments on Weather Broadcasts

The notice below is from the US Coast Guard:

The US Coast Guard is seeking public comment on the need to continue
providing high frequency (HF) radio broadcasts of weather forecasts and
warnings. Public comment is necessary in order to assess the demand for
the HF radio broadcasts in each of three forms: (1) radiofacsimile; (2)
voice; and (3) simplex teletype over radio (SITOR), also known as narrow
band direct printing (NBDP). The infrastructure necessary to provide
these services has exceeded its useful life expectancy; the equipment is
no longer manufactured, repairs are difficult to accomplish, and spare
parts generally are not available. Comments should be submitted by
August 24. 72 Fed. Reg. 20863
<> (April 26, 2007).
