Thank you all for your valuable info. I have thought about getting an AIS transponder to see and to be seen and I have a little GRUNDIG Yachtboy. I am not sure about the NavTex, it says it will transmit warnings. I am after the regular marine weather forecast. A nice 20 kt+ wind will not create a warning but would be nasty riding the Gulf stream while the Wind comes from the North!

Special thanks to Bill (btrayfors) this was a primer on SSB on Island Packets. This is really appreciated and comes very handy during this economic times. I assume, I don't need the ground (rub rail) for receiving just the hoisted wire antenna ... This will be my way to go. Thanks again!
