The CG needs public comment in order to continue to justify funding for these systems. In many parts of the world and for cruisers on a budget...WeFax, Sitor and voice SSB broadcast are the only weather a cruiser can get. I would urge anyone witheven a passing interest in cruising to take a couple of minutes to comment that it is worth keeping this service as no practical alternatives exist for the general public.
