While I agree with Labatt about the usefulness of SSB/Ham radio while cruising - you can even send/rec'v emails this way nowadays - To get the Caribbean weather reports it is only necessary to have a shortwave receiver, and the list of frequencies and time for the reports.

Chris's daily reports are informative and quite enjoyable even just to listen to... and were a part of our daily routine each morning. The other must-listen was "George" in St Croix - good data, free to us at the time but I expect you can subscribe to more complete service from him too.

We can also vouch for the fact that outside of harbours few boats or stations listen to VHF - esp 16.
