Receiving weather faxes and forescast

I am in Fort Pierce, Florida .
And I want to know at what time I can here Chris Parker forescast and also at what time can I receive the weather faxes in my SSB receiver

Here's Chris Parker's Schedule and frequencies:CARIBWX The Caribbean Weather Site

And here's the complete worldwide NWS radio-fax schedule

And here's USA Navtex/Sitor text brpadcasts:
NAVTEX Product Listing
Note that:
Assigned frequencies shown, for carrier frequencies subtract 1.7 kHz. Typically specialized marine communications equipment uses assigned SITOR frequencies while general purpose equipment uses carrier frequencies. Note that stations share common frequencies. For SITOR.

Better is all you need for the Caribe on one page...I used it exclusively for several years.

Dear Camaraderie,

Thanks for all the information.
Now I hope I can hear them with my SSB receiver.

I also remember seeing some software that you could use on your laptop, connecting it to your ssb, which would provide you weatherfax and navtex data on your screen, I'll see if I can dig out the link, seemed really good.

No...they use the computer's sound card.
