Re: Ned software

Do you need software to download or software to read the files? Do you want grib files or weatherfax?

Free grib file reader = GRIB.US > Home

The standard setup for getting weatherfax is to attach a Pactor modem to the SSB and then connect the modem to your laptop. That will also allow you get email. Saildocs will provide grib files through email. (About Pactor Modems)
