Alaska Pacific Ocean RADIOFAX Schedule

Products listed on this page are provided by the Ocean Prediction Center and the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Anchorage, Alaska. The forecast area includes the North Pacific Alaska offshore and high seas waters. The products listed on this page are transmitted via high frequency (HF) through transmitters of the United States Coast Guard from Kodiak, Alaska. The shortwave HF signal is decoded by Weather FAX receivers onboard ships in the forecast area. The broadcast frequencies are listed below.

NOTE: If you are interested in printing the marine weather charts listed on this page a TIFF viewer is required to have a white background. Also, the black & white GIF images are available for printing, but they are not ideally sized for printing the complete chart. The GIF marine weather charts are colored and have a black background.

Time delay of analysis products: Graphic analysis/forecast charts broadcast by radiofacsimile are available by broadcast time and are usually available 30 minutes prior to broadcast.

Click for information on key terms & symbols used on charts and for information on the coding used on the surface preliminary analysis.
