Hi All.

I saw an iPhone app that will read navtex weather messages broadcast on shortwave and convert them to a written format.

Has anyone, HAM shortwave SSB knowledgeable, tried this and been successful?

I have a grundig 3G radio for shortwave, but have been unable to hear any information being broadcast on 518mHz.

Hi Nootka

Thanks.

I would have never considered looking in that document.

I'll give it a go in a few hrs and see what happens.

It worked. Well sort of.

I will have to use a patch cord to separate the phone from the radio as there is too much interference.
