Reviews

The perfect reference book to shelve beside the often-confounding weatherfax receiver. Ocean Navigator This very handy reference book will take up little room on board and can be firmly recommended. Sail Magazine Written by a seasoned New Zealand voyager, this updated guide to predicting weather from weatherfax and Internet charts doesn t overwhelm; rather, it breaks the technology down to its simplest terms, supported by a glossary of commonly used words and abbreviations. It also covers computer installation, radio/computer interface, software, antennas, and tuning radios for fax as well as interpreting synoptic charts. Cruising World
