The data is downloaded via standard 9-pin RS232 serial port or USB port that also supplies the power to the demodulator.  Sound Card edition includes an audio with galvanic isolator.


    WeatherFax 2000 is written in Microsoft C++™ and thus integrates itself seamlessly into the Windows™ environment.  The system has been rigorously tested on a wide variety of different manufacturer’s machines.

Documentation and On Line Help:

    The power of Windows™ help is used to the fullest here.  The context sensitive help not only explains every corner of the program but also has an in-depth guide to the World of Weather Fax.  Point to the area of water you are sailing in and see the fax stations for that area listed along with their frequencies and schedules.  In some cases, there are editorial notes from sailors who have used the stations.  If you have a sound card, you can listen to clips from fax transmissions to help you identify the various tones to assist you to tune your radio.
