Navacom MeteoScan

The new all-in-one software for the professional sailor

 

Weather reports are essential for all sailors.

Besides upcoming storms, heavy rains and other kinds of weather warnings, it is also

nice to know if there are other navigational warnings like closed areas, search and

rescue operations, etc.

 

These kind of messages are sent by radio in the modes NAVTEX, RTTY or Fax.

Navacom MeteoScan is a program that is capable of decoding and showing these

messages on a personal computer. This software combined with a good shortwave

receiver will always keep you up-to-date with the latest weather and navigational

warnings.

 

RTTY

RTTY stands for Radio Tele Type, also known as Telex over Radio Information through RTTY includes:

  • Weather reports

  • Precipitation reports

  • Wind directions and force Gale warnings

Navtex

NAVTEX is the abbreviation for Navigational TEleX, a very reliable mode for

transmitting navigational warnings and weather reports.

 

Fax

FAX, short for facsimile, resembles a FAX-machine used in offices and at home.

The difference is that it is not sent over a telephone line but sent as a radio signal.

FAX enables you to receive the latest weather charts on your PC, store them in files

and print them out or view them on your PC. It is the ideal way to have an overall look

on weather systems, high and low pressure areas, wind force, swell, etc. Also outlooks

for several days are sent through FAX.

 

How does MeteoScan work ?

Very simple. The only things you need is a good communications receiver and a PC

or laptop. Install the program. Connect the receiver to the soundcard input of your PC

with the supplied cable and you are off. The program handles almost everything.

The software is English and easy in use. Optional an interface is available to remotely

control a variety of different receivers (You don't need this option if you are using an

Icom IC-PCR1500/2500 or IC-R1500/R2500).
