some questions re: sailing in the Caribbean.
- Is CNG accessable at all in the islands?
-I''m getting conflicting info on whether the Grundig YB400 can tune in the offshore forecasts in the Caribbean. Has anybody had any experience with this radio? Is there an inexpensive alternative to SSB in accessing offshore forecasts in the Caribbean?
-Do any Caribbean islands have regulations that prevent or limit visitations from boats that are not insured?
Thanks

Dear Mark:
We have a YB400 and a ICOM
710. While in the Carribean
this year from Dec to May
I found the YB disappointing
for weathernets. We find
a SSB receiver/transceiver
one of the necessities of
crusing for both weather,
but also for communicating
with others we meet along
the way.
Regards,
John
