Re: advice on getting weather fax
My advice (only slight facetious) is to just buy an Iridium Go, with Predict Wind, and connect it to a laptop. I think unlimited data packages are ~$140/mo and include a couple of hours of talk time to stay in touch (or call in emergency). Small cruising budget item. Substantially easier and more functional.
I'm still surprised that no one has created an app and cable to connect an iPad to a Pactor that just figures the rest out. SSB/Pactor tech is good basic stuff (I have one too), but stupidly complicated by today's standards.
