GRIB coded forecasts Salidocs

This is a service set up by sailors in the USA. It enables arrow diagram forecasts, for up to 5 days ahead, and other information to be obtained in email form (or by Marine HF and HAM radio). The data are highly compressed so that a great deal of information can be acquired quickly and at low cost - even using a mobile phone connected to a laptop computer. For details email [email protected] com subject 'any'. There is no charge for this service. In addition Saildocs can provide the text to any web page stripped of all pictures and dropdowns. This is useful for getting texts of forecasts from the Spanish Met service site from which downloads are very slow.
