Hello Cruising Sailors.

We all can be weather men just like Chris Parker, Sea Cat, and the Noaa guys. Here is how:

First you have to download a program on your computer to accept digital data from Your radio and turn them into weather charts, satellite photos, discussions, etc.

The program I use can be found by searching for JV Comm 32. This is a free program as long as you do not try to copy it to give to others--- This is normal in freeware, part of the payment the programmer receives is bragging rights about the number of downloads his programs are receiving.

It is a straight forward installation, the only hard part is altering the configuration page, found under file, and selecting the port of your computer the radio is accessing: microphone, line in, etc.

THE WIRE. This is not hard. I used speaker wire but anything will do. This wire leads from the computer: headphones, line out, speakers, and to the computer, line in, microphone, etc. The line leading into the computer MUST be a monoplug, not stereo.

The help file for the program is very good and clear. Have fun weather forecasting!
