Struggling with weather

August 28, 2010

Our planning continues and this time it’s the weather and the knowledge and functionality that we would like to have to make the trip to Hawaii.  We’ve purchased soft/hardware “Weatherfax 2000′ (http://www.xaxero.com/) to assist our SW receiver to accept weather faxes on our laptop. As you can see below, in our preparations we’re testing out the systems using 4 different computers:

Of course this doesn’t really require all this equipment when it becomes totally functional.  It does help though with setting things up. Our real struggle is with receiving the required signals on our SW radio since it appears reception is limited to the 80 metre band and we’re not getting anything else at present.

Just in case we can’t receive the required weather faxes we have employed the assistance of a land based weather forecaster – see photos attached
