The auto-responders are a means to request marine forecast data via email. By sending a specially formatted message containing a model valid lat/long position, you can have a reply to any email address with the forecast data. Similar to the National Weather Services FTPmail, the auto-responders read the variables sent by email and executes a program that sends out the data.
This service is primarily for mariners who do not have a direct connection to the internet, but do have an email system.
The auto-responders run four times per hour. The turn around time once the email is received will be less than 15 minutes. HF email services, however, do not process and relay your messages immediately. You can expect turnaround times to be closer to 2 hours.
Detailed directions are available as a zip file and should be downloaded on to the vessels computer. An online version is available to browse by clicking
