WAVE...you should make clear that HF... IS WEATHER VOICE FORECASTS OVER THE SSB...since vhf is no good much more than 25 miles from land...it takes the place of "weather radio" for cruisers. It is also text weather (SITOR) and weather fax (WeFax). If you only use weather radio (VHF) today...but you hope to cruise someday...it IS in your interest to make sure this stuff is still there for you when you do need it OR simply to help your fellow sailors out there who do cruise.
