Unmoderated forum on marine electrical and electronic equipment. Good VHF advice and resources here, but you have to dig and you have to be selective.
A marine digital recorder to capture incoming radio weather forecasts, vessel traffic reports, etc. Sift through a long transmission for the data you need using fast forward. Play back the critical information more than once for accuracy.
A discussion board and photo gallery for cruising sailors and wannabes focused on sailing instruments and communications equipment. Autopilot, radar, sonar, chart plotters, satellite telephones, mobile telephones, internet, marine e-mail, VHF, HF, SSB, etc.
