I use weather fax 2000 also the one thing that they dont get into much is volume the volume nob on the radio and probably on your mic is almost as important as the fine tuning. play with the volume some and see if it doesnt help. I have a Icom 710 and it has a speaker off/on button you can turn the speaker off and crank up the volume. with out having to listen to it then just tune. You are stepping down 1.9 right. like new orleans on 4317.9 is recieved on 4316.0
Night time Is better and if your in a marine with alot of other sailboats it degrades the signal. can you get an external antenna for that little radio? and how are you getting the signal from the radio to the computer?
hope this helps

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.
