The Sony works fine. The Kaito 1103 ( http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?lt1=_blan...ins=B0006OCEFY ) is pretty popular - I carry mine on deliveries to be sure I have weather.

At the risk of being blunt and without the intent of offending anyone, gribs are inadequate. WEFAX is the way to go. You still get wind vectors and the synoptics show the fronts that you DO want to know about.

sail fast and eat well, dave
