    Gulf Stream Info
    From: Joe Kliment

    You can receive voice broadcasts about the GS from NMN (USCG, Portsmouth, VA.).
    In particular, they give you info on the "west wall" and any eddies. The GS
    info is provided at the end of the weather broadcasts which begin at 1600
    and 2200 GMT on frequencies of: 6501, 8764, and 13089kHz daily.  You need a
    SSB radio receiver to pick up "Perfect Paul"(synthesized) broadcasts. Take
    along a small portable tape recorder and record the whole session.  Then
    play back to catch the info you want.
    If your vessel has a HF weatherfax receiver, GS info is broadcast by NAM
    (Navy, Norfolk, VA.)daily at 0300 GMT on 3357, 8080, and 10865 kHz. It's in
    the form of a facsimile GS analysis chart.
