Pacific Ocean RADIOFAX Schedule

Products listed on this page are provided by the Ocean Prediction Center and the National Hurricane Center (denoted with **). The forecast area includes the North and Tropcial Pacific 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 Point Reyes, California. 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 produces the best results. The GIF marine weather charts are color enhanced and includes the actual color coded weather symbols.

Time delay of analysis products: Graphic analysis/forecast charts broadcast by radiofacsimile are available by broadcast time and are usually available 15 minutes prior to broadcast.
