Tried my hand at some weather fax reception this evening, both from Norwood on 8040 Khz and Boston on 9110. Received ‘something’ from both of them but not what I would call a resounding success! I could just about make out frontal data but very indistinct. It also showed that the FRG-7 is not entirely stable when receiving narrow band modes, with me constantly having to adjust the sliding window to keep the decode the signal properly. Anyway, much fun and I shall give it a go again. I just need a much stronger signal to work with, although fldigi did well with the signal that was there.
I got some great info about doing this from this website: http://hfradioreview.com/2014/10/23/how-do-i-decode-a-weather-facsimile-wefax-off-of-my-shortwave/
