Books: Shortwave Utility Listening 

A Shortwave Radio Listener's Guide to
Weather Facsimile Reception

By Steven Handler
Everyday the shortwave bands are buzzing with the sounds of a fax machine. Sometimes called radiofax, radio facsimile and WEFAX, these broadcasts allow weather forecasting agencies around the world to simultaneously furnish many users with weather maps, weather charts and satellite photos. To receive these transmissions you need a shortwave communications receiver, a multimode decoder or computer interface and this book to tell you when and where to look for these interesting transmissions. The first part of the book includes a comprehensive technical discussion of fax transmissions. The next section is an up-to-date list of FAX stations by frequency. The last section is a time ordered list of scheduled fax transmissions. 2012 39 pages.
