INTRODUCTION
A printed copy of this publication is distributed free of charge to all ships
that participate in the U.S. Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) program. If
your ship is not participating in this worthwhile international program, we
urge you to join. Remember, the meteorological agencies that do the
weather forecasting cannot help you without input from you. ONLY YOU
KNOW THE WEATHER AT YOUR POSITION!!
Please report the weather at 0000, 0600, 1200, and 1800 UTC as
explained in the National Weather Service Observing Handbook No. 1
for Marine Surface Weather Observations.
Within 300 nm of a named hurricane, typhoon or tropical storm, or within
200 nm of U.S. or Canadian waters, also report the weather at 0300,
0900, 1500, and 2100 UTC. Your participation is greatly appreciated by
all mariners.
For assistance, contact a Port Meteorological Officer (PMO), who will
come aboard your vessel and provide all the information you need to
observe, code and transmit weather observations.
Appendix C contains information on a PC software program known as
AMVER/SEAS which greatly assists in coding and transmitting
meteorological observations and AMVER position reports.
This publication is made available via Internet at:
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/home.htm
This webpage contains information on the dissemination of U.S. National
Weather Service marine products including radiofax, such as frequency
and scheduling information as well as links to products. A listing of other
recommended webpages may be found in the Appendix.

ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
The schedules contained in this book were obtained from official and unofficial sources. The
information herein may neither be complete or accurate. Wherever possible, the schedules
are dated with the latest change available. In several cases, unofficial reception reports have
been received identifying the station as no longer being operational. The National Weather
Service would like to thank everyone who provided assistance.
For ease of use, all stations are listed by WMO region, in alphabetical order, by country and
location. All times listed herein are Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), unless otherwise
indicated.
Unless otherwise stated, assigned frequencies are shown, for carrier frequency subtract 1.9
kHz. Typically dedicated radiofax receivers use assigned frequencies, while receivers or
transceivers, connected to external recorders or PC's, are operated in the upper sideband
(USB) mode using carrier frequencies.
For information on weather broadcasts worldwide, also refer to NGA Publication 117, the
Canadian Coast Guard Radio Aids to Navigation (Canada Only) and the British Admiralty List
of Signals, which are updated through Notices to Mariners. Information on these and other
marine weather publications may be found in Appendix D. These publications are HIGHLY
recommended.
This document also includes information on how to obtain National Weather Service text
forecasts, graphic forecasts, and marine observations via the Internet and e-mail (FTPMAIL).
Mariners are highly encouraged to explore these options.
The accuracy of this publication depends on YOUR input.
Please direct comments, recommendations, and corrections for this publication to:

FOR ALL LATITUDES DIVIDE 50 BY THE SPACING BETWEEN THE STREAM FUNCTION
LINES EXPRESSED IN DEGREES OF LATITUDE. THESE CHARTS, COMPUTER-GENERATED,
ARE PARTICULARLY USEFUL IN THE TROPICS, WHERE THE ISOBARIC SPACING AND
WIND-SPEED RELATIONSHIPS BECOME LESS MEANINGFUL. ARROWS ON THE STREAMFUNCTION ANALYSIS CHARTS DEPICT VELOCITIES IN KNOTS OF THE TOPS OF LOWER
CLOUDS DERIVED FROM SUCCESSIVE OBSERVATIONS BY SATELLITE. CAUTION - THESE
CHARTS, BEING COMPUTER GENERATED, MAY NOT PROPERLY DELINEATE SMALL, THOUGH
INTENSE, SYSTEMS IN DATA-SPARSE AREAS. NOTES ARE MANUALLY ADDED TO DIRECT
ATTENTION TO SUCH SYSTEMS WHEN PRESENT.
(2)NORTH PACIFIC SURFACE PRESSURE ISOBARIC ANALYSIS CHARTS, MANUALLY ANALYZED
AT THE WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE/CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER,
HONOLULU DEPICT THE ISOBARIC (PRESSURE) FIELD NORTH OF 10N.
(3) PACIFIC STREAMLINE ANALYSIS DEPICTS WIND DIRECTION USING STREAMLINES.
THE ANALYSIS IS PRODUCED MANUALLY AT THE FORECAST OFFICE
AND COVERS THE AREA BETWEEN 30S AND 30N, BETWEEN 130E AND 120W.
(4)THE 48-HOUR ISOBARIC SURFACE/THICKNESS FORECAST CHARTS DEPICT LINES OF
EQUAL PRESSURE IN MILLIBARS (SOLID LINES) AND, CHIEFLY OF INTEREST TO
METEOROLOGISTS, 1000-TO-500 MILLIBAR THICKNESSES (DASHED LINES).
(5)THE SIGNIFICANT CLOUD FEATURES CHARTS DEPICT CLOUD FEATURES BASED UPON
IMAGES FROM THE VARIOUS GEOSTATIONARY AND POLAR ORBITING SATELLITES OVER
THE PACIFIC. ABBREVIATIONS ON THESE CHARTS INCLUDE: AC - ALTOCUMULUS;
AS - ALTOSTRATUS; BKN - BROKEN; CB - CUMULONIMBUS; CC - CIRROCUMULUS;
CI - CIRRUS; CS - CIRROSTRATUS; CU - CUMULUS; FEW - FEW; ISOL - ISOLATED;
LYRS - LAYERS; NS - NIMBOSTRATUS; OVC - OVERCAST; SC - STRATO-CUMULUS;
SCT - SCATTERED; TCU - TOWERING CUMULUS; TSTM – THUNDERSTORM
(6) TROPICAL CYCLONE DANGER GRAPHIC TRANSMITTED DURING HURRICANE SEASON.
(7) RADIOFAX FREQUENCIES ARE ASSIGNED FREQUENCIES. TO CONVERT TO CARRIER
FREQUENCIES, SUBTRACT 1.9 KHZ FROM THE ASSIGNED FREQUENCIES.
(8) BROADCAST MAY BE PERFORMED CONTINUOUSLY ON FOUR LISTED FREQUENCIES WHEN
RESOURSES ARE AVAILABLE.

Weather Service marine products including radiofax such as frequency and scheduling information
as well as links to products. The webpage may be found at:
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/home.htm
Marine Text Forecasts and Products
The majority of National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts and warnings may be found under the
NWS webpage (http://www.nws.noaa.gov). Of specific interest to mariners are NWS Marine Text
Forecasts and Products (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine//home.htm#text) . For
convenience, High Seas, Offshore and Coastal marine forecasts are subdivided by sea area or
zone and available via the Internet using our text interface or graphic interface. Individual NWS
Forecast Offices and Centers producing marine forecasts provide links to their products as well
as additional regionally focused information
(http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/marine_map.htm).
Marine Graphic Forecasts and Products
Graphic marine forecasts are produced by NWS for broadcast via radiofax and also made
available via the Internet at Marine Radiofax Charts (http://weather.noaa.gov/fax/marine.shtml)
The National Weather Service also plans to make available marine forecast data in gridded and
vector formats for display on electronic charts and use by other value-added applications. Graphics
using these data are available via the Internet on an experimental basis for most U.S. coastal
areas. See http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/newsgridded.htm
Also see Computer Generated Model Guidance below.
Satellite and RADAR Imagery
Satellite imagery may be found on the GOES webpage (http://www.goes.noaa.gov/) and is also
available from NASA (http://rsd.gsfc.nasa.gov/goes/). Ocean surface winds and other data derived
from polar orbiting and geostationary satellites may be found on NOAA's Marine Observing
Systems Team Homepage (http://manati.wwb.noaa.gov/doc/oppt.html) and NOAA's Coastwatch

The Weather Charts webpage (http://weather.noaa.gov/fax/graph.shtml) contains charts,
intended as guidance to forecasters, which can prove of value to mariners.
Note: Several charts listed under "Weather Charts", which are no longer required to support NWS
operations, may be terminated or made available at alternate sites. This should not include those
which are broadcast by marine radiofacsimile.
Caution...these data have not been validated by marine forecasters and may be misleading.
Mariners should use these data in conjunction with forecaster generated forecasts.
Marine Climatolgical Information
User-friendly climatological information for marine coastal areas may be found in Appendix T of
the National Ocean Service's Coast Pilot's, volumes 1-9
(http://chartmaker.ncd.noaa.gov:80/nsd/cpdownload.htm). These appendices, which were
prepared by the National Climatic Data Center (http://lwf.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/ncdc.html), also
contain other useful meteorological information such as conversion tables. Visit their webpage for
further information.
The National Geospacial-Intelligence Agency now makes available some of its Pilot Charts on-line
(http://164.214.12.145/pubs/pubs_j_apc_list.html).

APPENDIX A-3
The National Weather Service has a number of other volunteer observation programs including the
SKYWARN, MAREP, MAROB, MARS, APRSWXNET/Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP)
and the Cooperative Observer Program (COOP) which are of benefit to the marine community.
See: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/voluntary.htm
Marine Webpages
The Internet contains a great number of webpages of interest to the mariner. Visit our Links
webpage (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/mlinks.htm) for a listing of recommended
webpages pertaining to Marine Weather. The U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Telecommunications
Information webpage (http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/marcomms) contains an excellent description
of marine communication systems. There are also many other Internet sites of interest to the
mariner. Use one the Internet search engines to search on topics such as "marine weather",
"radiofax", "radiofacsimile", "weather buoys", "tides", etc. The NOAA Library
(http://www.lib.noaa.gov) provides an excellent listing of links to marine related webpages within
NOAA and elsewhere
Marine Weather Publications On the Web
Many marine weather related government publications are available on the Web. Visit our
publications webpage http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/pub.htm) for several we recommend
including our popular Marine Service Charts, the Mariners Weather Log Magazine, and our listing
of Worldwide Marine Radiofacsimile Broadcast Schedules (this publication).
Internet Access for Mariners
Internet at sea can be problematic unless you stay within cellular telephone range of shore.
Internet access using cellular technology is technically challenging and potentially frustrating as
well. Terrestrial wireless Internet services such as those provided by GoAmerica
(www.goamerica.net), Palm.Net (http://www.palm.com/products/palmvii/wireless.html), OmniSky
(www.omnisky.com/), TeleSea (http://www.teleseawireless.net// ), Motient
(http://www.motient.com/), eHarbor (www.eharbor.org) and AlwaysOnline.net
(www.alwaysonline.net) are beginning to become available, however, these provide limited
maritime coverage. These companies may employ "Marine WIFI" technology which is rapidly
becoming popular at marinas and in favorite harbor areas. Satellite services including Inmarsat
(www.inmarsat.org), Iridium (www.iridium.com/), Globalstar (www.globalstarusa.com), Thuraya
(www.thuraya.com), Emsat (www.eutelsat.com/products/2_4_2.html), AceS
(www.acesinternational.com/), tracNet/DirecPC (www.kvh.com/MarineSat/index.asp?flash=yes),
Mobile Satellite Ventures (www.tmi.ca), Boatracs (www.boatracs.com, Orbcomm
(www.orbcomm.com), Digital Seas International(http://www.mtnsat.com/digitalseas.htm), and
MTN (www.mtnsat.com) are available, however, costs are generally greater.
Several companies offer e-mail services designed to optimize satellite connectivity including
MAILASAIL (http://www.mailasail.com/), MarineNet (http://www.marinenet.net/), OCENS
(http://www.ocens.com/cgi-bin/ocens_mail.pl?p=info), Telaurus (http://www.telaurus.net/ ) and
UUPLUS (http://www.uuplus.com/). Full Internet access is often available if you have a satellite
terminal onboard, but presently unless you restrict your use to e-mail messages, costs can be high.
A number of satellite services such as Inmarsat-C offer e-mail messaging services only and
provide no direct access to the World Wide Web. Several transmission and data compression
schemes are available and in development to make the Web more accessible to the mariner.
There are also several public FTP-to-EMAIL and WWW-to-EMAIL servers available to allow
Internet access for users who do not have direct or cost effective access to the World Wide Web
but who are equipped with an e-mail system. Visit http://www.faqs.org/faqs/internetservices/access-via-email/ for information. Low cost, worldwide, access to the World Wide Web via
satellite should be available to the mariner in the next five to ten years.
APPENDIX A-4
E-mail access is available offshore if you have an HF marine radio from companies such as
Sailmail (www.sailmail.com), SeaMail (www.seamail.org), , CruiseEmail
(www.cruiseemail.com/index.html), MarineNet (www.marinenet.net), Kielradio
(www.kielradio.de/GB/Start_GB.htm), Globe Wireless (www.globewireless.com), Mobile Marine
Radio Network-WLO (www.wloradio.com). and The Message Center
(http://world.std.com/~msgctr/). E-mail can be accomplished at no cost using amateur radio
(http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/ham.htm).
The domain of the Internet is rapidly expanding to now include wireless devices such as so-called
"Internet-Ready" digital cellular phones and Personal Data Assistants (PDAs). These offer great
potential for making marine forecasts available to coastal mariners, who have limited other options
available. The majority of these other options are by voice where there is always the possibility of
misunderstanding. A PDA-friendly webpage for the most popular marine text forecasts may be
found at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/marinewxi.htm. Visit
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutwap.shtml where you will find NHC/TPC's wireless web page. There
you can find the link to obtain NHC/TPC's most popular hurricane products, offshore forecasts, and
high seas forecast, using your own Internet-ready phone, or use one of simulators for which a link
is provided. Also visit the Miami Forecast Office's Wireless Access Page
(http://www.srh.noaa.gov/mfl/newpage/wireless.html). A WAP webpage for offshore and coastal
forecasts created by our Southern Region headquarters may be found at: www.srh.noaa.gov/wml
(includes a capability to view forecast for any zip/city). Note....WAP/WML webpages require a
WAP-capable celphone or other WAP-capable device.
A number of Cellular service providers are beginning to offer value-added Internet-like services
which provide access to NOAA tide data, marine forecasts, and other items of interest to the
wireless customer. These require a digital phone with some of the more advanced features. See
your Cellular service provider for details. There may be a nominal fee required for using these
services. Examples of specific interest to the mariner include Ekkosoft's "SaltWater Tides" and
"MarineWeather with marine411" (http://www.ekkosoft.com/)
National Weather Service Products Available Via E-MAIL (FTPMAIL)
National Weather Service marine text forecasts and radiofax charts are available via e-mail.
Further, FTPMAIL may be used to acquire any file on a *.noaa.gov FTP server. The FTPMAIL
server is intended to allow Internet access for mariners and other users who do not have direct
access to the World Wide Web but who are equipped with an e-mail system. Turnaround is
generally in under one hour, however, performance may vary widely and receipt cannot be
guaranteed. To get started in using the NWS FTPMAIL service, follow these simple directions to
obtain the FTPMAIL "help" file (11 KBytes), or visit http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/fax/ftpmail.txt.

**** NEW USERS....Read these notes on CAPITALIZATION *****
CORRECT CAPITALIZATION FOR COMMANDS, DIRECTORY AND FILE
NAMES IS CRITICAL. FOLLOW THE EXAMPLES CLOSELY.
FTPMAIL e-mail requests must be sent in ASCII/Plain Text only.
HTML formatting will likely result in no response from the FTPMAIL
server.
*.noaa.gov sites are the only valid FTP sites for this server
This National Weather Service (NWS) FTPMAIL server is intended to
allow Internet access for users who do not have direct access to
the World Wide Web but who are equipped with an e-mail system.
The service is free and no signup is required. Using FTPMAIL,
users can request files from NWS and have them automatically
e-mailed back to them. Turnaround is generally in under one
hour, however, performance may vary widely and receipt cannot be
guaranteed.
NOTICE - Check time and date of forecasts. Downloaded data may not
represent the latest forecast. The Internet is not part of the
National Weather Service's operational data stream and should never
be relied upon as a means to obtain the latest forecast and warning
data. Become familar with and use other means such as NOAA Weather
Radio to obtain the latest forecasts and warnings. Please read our
disclaimer at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/disclaimer.php
Although these instructions are tailored for marine users to gain
access to graphic(radiofax) and text products via e-mail, all
publicly available data on any *.noaa.gov Internet FTP server is
accessible using the FTPMAIL server.
To use FTPMAIL, the user sends a small script file via e-mail to
NWS requesting the desired file(s). An error message will be
returned if the script file is in error.
Users should be familiar with sending and receiving messages and
attachments with their particular e-mail system. Attachments are
received in UUencoded form. The majority of modern e-mail
systems handle the conversion automatically, other users will
need to run the UUdecode program for their particular system.
See your system administrator if you have any questions on this
topic. The UUencoding process can add 0 to >100% overhead
depending on your system and the type of file.
Files sizes for NWS radiofax graphic files average 35KB but can
be much greater. Users should be aware of the costs for operating
their particular e-mail system before attempting to use FTPMAIL,
especially when using satellite communication systems. For marine
users, using FTPMAIL via INMARSAT-C for obtaining current NWS
radiofax graphic files is cost prohibitive.
Using the FTPMAIL
compression feature of FTPMAIL is not recommended as these files
are already in a compressed T4(G4) format enveloped in TIFF for
viewing. You will need a graphics program capable of displaying
files in this format in order to view them. Suggestions for TIFF
viewers may be found in file http://weather.noaa.gov/fax/rfaxtif.txt
NEW! Radiofax .TIF files now also available as (larger) .gif files
The following examples demonstrate the use of FTPMAIL. Indexes of
currently available marine products, the list FTPMAIL commands,
and suggestions for TIFF viewers may be obtained following these
instructions.

Many, but not all National Weather Service forecast products may be
obtained using FTPMAIL if the WMO/AWIPS Header is known as follows.
Be aware that several NWS products share WMO headers so the desired
forecast may be overwritten at times by another product.
Example:

*************************SPECIAL NOTES*************************
CORRECT CAPITALIZATION FOR COMMANDS, DIRECTORY AND FILE
NAMES IS CRITICAL. FOLLOW THE EXAMPLES CLOSELY.
FTPMAIL e-mail requests must be sent in ASCII/Plain Text only.
HTML formatting will likely result in no response from the FTPMAIL
server.
Problems have recently been reported by users of Hotmail. If you are
a Hotmail user and are using the system successfully, please notify
us of and your experiences and any workarounds you may have developed.
If you restrict incoming e-mail as a means of preventing spam, you
must program your e-mail system to allow messages from:
ftpmail@tgsv22.nws.noaa.gov, ftpmail@tgsv23.nws.noaa.gov,
ftpmail@tgsv24.nws.noaa.gov, ftpmail@tgsv25.nws.noaa.gov
The majority of error messages have been disabled.
You may or may
not receive an error message back from FTPMAIL if your script is in
error.
FTPMAIL problems are occasionally encountered when embedded control
characters are received within the e-mail message received by the
FTPMAIL server. These control characters may be introduced by the
user's e-mail system and may be unavoidable. We are working to develop
a version of FTPMAIL which parses these control characters.
Also be certain that each of your commands is not followed by any trailing
space(s) or you will see an error message with a number of statements
saying "=20"
Problems may also be encountered in trying to go down several levels
of directories simultaneously, e.g. "cd data/forecasts/marine/test".
Use a series of commands "cd data", "cd forecasts", "cd marine" instead.
In both these instances, the likely error will be "Directory not Found"
If the FTPMAIL server is too busy, you will receive an e-mail with a
subject line similar to: "ftpmail job queuing for retry queue/097095.69568"
Your request will be resubmitted automatically and your requested
file(s) should be received within several hours.

AMVER/SEAS
In Pursuit of Safety At Sea
Under a cooperative agreement between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U. S.
Coast Guard (USCG), software has been created to assist Volunteer Observing Ships (VOS) in submitting marine
weather reports and participating in the Automated Mutual-assistance VEssel Rescue system (AMVER). The VOS
program allows ships to report marine weather to the National Weather Service (NWS) so that high seas forecasts will
be as timely and accurate as possible. The AMVER system allows ships to report their intended track so that in the
event of an emergency all available resources may be focused on aiding ships in distress. Both of these systems are
voluntary and are intended to aid all mariners on the high seas. All transmission costs are paid by the U.S. Coast
Guard and NOAA. The ship is not responsible for any transmission costs, provided messages are sent to the address
specified in the user=s guide.
NOAA=s SEAS (Shipboard Environmental data Acquisition System) program relies on volunteer observers to report
weather at least four times per day at 00Z, 06Z, 12Z, and 18Z. Ships are encouraged to also submit reports at 03Z,
09Z, 15Z and 21Z. In addition, a very limited number of ships are asked to collect oceanographic data. For these
ships, a SEAS field representative installs the extra hardware needed and trains the crew in collecting and transmitting
the data. Portions of the software needed for these observations are password protected to eliminate confusion.
AMVER reports allow the U. S. Coast Guard to track a vessel=s position. The AMVER program relies on ships to
submit four types of reports: (1) Sail Plans; (2) Position Reports; (3) Arrival Reports and (4) Deviation Reports, when
necessary. The U. S. Coast Guard updates their database with the position information from these reports, which
allows them to identify vessels in the vicinity of a ship in distress.
Ships may participate in either the AMVER or SEAS program, but there are benefits to participating in both. A ship can
reduce reporting requirements, since AMVER position reports are created from every weather message and
automatically forwarded to the U.S. Coast Guard.
A typical voyage would require the submission of an AMVER Sail Plan before departure, submissions of weather
reports four times per day and the submission of an Arrival Report upon arrival. A Deviation Report is only submitted if
the ship deviates from its original plan. Ships that follow the same routes repeatedly get an additional benefit since Sail
Plans can be stored in the system and recalled and modified rather than creating new ones.
The AMVER/SEAS PC software was developed for use with INMARSAT C transceivers. For those ships already
participating in the SEAS program, GOES transmitters will continue to work for the transmission of SEAS observations.
To participate in the AMVER program the ship must possess an INMARSAT C transmitter with a floppy drive and the
ability to send messages in binary format, and a 286 (or better) IBM compatible PC.
A Windows 95/98/00/ME/NT/XP version of AMVER/SEAS is now available.

APPENDIX C-1
MAROB
An Experimental Voluntary Marine Observation Program
All Information with Respect to the MAROB Program Are Preliminary and Subject to Revision
The MAROB Program is an experimental voluntary marine observation program of the National
Weather Service in the early stages of development. It seeks the participation of all mariners, both
commercial and recreational, which are not part of the more in-depth VOS program. It is the goal of
the program to collect as many marine observations as practicable, to improve the accuracy of
coastal, offshore and high seas forecasts, by taking advantage of technological advancements in
marine communications and the proliferation of the Internet.
MAROB observations will be in coded form which can be better ingested, distributed and displayed
by forecasters than observations in plain language. The MAROB report format will be identical to
VOS coded reports, with the exception that "MAROB" will replace "BBXX". The MAROB program
will differ from the VOS Program in at least several other aspects: Although MAROBs will be used
by forecasters in forecast decision process, these data will likely not be used directly by computer
models; Any communications charges and the cost of any observing equipment will not be
reimbursed by the Weather Service; The observation elements collected will typically be a subset
of those collected in the full VOS report.
The National Weather Service is in the process of developing cooperative arrangements with
organizations such as the United States Power Squadrons, the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the WinLink
2000 Global Radio Network, the Maritime Mobile Service Network, CruiseEmail.com, Ocens,
Sailmail, SkyMate, MarineNet Wireless, and the YOTREP Reporting System, to both train
observers and forward observations to NWS. Technologies utilized may include cellular telephone,
HF Marine radio, MF Marine radio, VHF Marine Radio, Ham Radio, Webforms and e-mail.
In several cases, MAROB reporting schemes will work in conjunction with vessel position reporting
systems such as WinLink's Position Reporter, the Maritime Mobile Service Network's ShipTrak,
and the YOTREPs Reporter, to enhance the safety of mariners.
At present, mariners may participate in the MAROB program in any of several ways.

NOAA WEATHER RADIO NETWORK
(1) 162.550 mHz
(2) 162.400 mHz
(3) 162.475 mHz
(4) 162.425 mHz
(5) 162.450 mHz
(6) 162.500 mHz
(7) 162.525 mHz
Channel numbers, e.g. (WX1, WX2) etc. have no special significance but are often designated this way in
consumer equipment. Other channel numbering schemes are also prevalent.
The NOAA Weather Radio network provides voice broadcasts of local and coastal marine forecasts on a
continuous cycle. The forecasts are produced by local National Weather Service Forecast Offices.
Coastal stations also broadcast predicted tides and real time observations from buoys and coastal
meteorological stations operated by NOAA's National Data Buoy Center. Based on user demand, and
where feasible, Offshore and Open Lake forecasts are broadcast as well.
The NOAA Weather Radio network provides near continuous coverage of the coastal U.S, Great Lakes,
Hawaii, and populated Alaska coastline. Typical coverage is 25 nautical miles offshore, but may extend
much further in certain areas.
