Subject:  Degraded HFFAX Transmissions Effective Immediately

 

The U.S. Coast Guard is currently experiencing degradation in

image quality of all HFFAX (WEFAX) products.  The NWS and Coast

Guard representatives are troubleshooting the problem. 

We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

HFFAX products can be obtained using the NWS' FTPMAIL system. 

This is a system where a user can request and receive HFFAX

(WEFAX) products via email.  If internet access is available,
