Outernet for sailors (weather forecast grib files) - Amateur HAM Radio

Outernet for sailors (weather forecast grib files)  - Amateur HAM Radio

I just find out this project and spent all the day reading about it and I think I can say that its really possible that in a few time it will be a Lantern in each boat in the world.

Sailors don’t have a really good way to get free digital weather forecast offshore. Before leaving we need to download grib files but you can’t trust in a forecast after 3 days so is critical to get updated forecasts.

These forecasts are generated daily at 0015, 0615, 1215, 1815 GMT for every region of the world. GRIB forecasts are based on the National Weather Service, NOAA, Wave Watch III model yielding highly accurate forecasts every 6 hours for up to 7 days into the future. All GRIB forecasts are available via download or delivered by e-mail and optimized specifically for low bandwidth wireless connections.

These files are compressed and can be read by lots of marine software.

The question is, it would be possible daily access to these files through outernet? If so, it will be massively used by every sailor in the world.

What do you think?
