auspicious I googled this and the first page is nws from noaa...is that the one I should use?Weather information is very important. Gribs are not the best source of weather information.
You can use an inexpensive SSB receiver like the Kaito 1103 (lots of options) and a decent antenna, free software like JVCOMM32, a $5 cable from Radio Shack, and a laptop to get synoptic charts. Google rfax.pdf for the schedules worldwide. Easy peasy and way better than gribs.
I remembered a thread on here talking about the cheapest receiver only weatherfax system and yours is practically that...maybe it was you who posted it...
