Today's technology provides mariners with increasingly sophisticated resources; new radio broadcasts, satellite connections, computer data bases. The Starpath Weather Trainer Live shows you how they work and where to find them. Subjects include: NAVTEX broadcasts; standard and new radio sources; weather by cellular phone; HF high seas reports; radiofacsimile weather maps; real time satellite photos; fax-back maps and text reports; new resources on the Internet network. This fast-changing technology renders most hard copy publications obsolete by the time they are published.
Traditional skills will always prove to be irreplaceable in prudent navigation. For traditionalists (and those who know Murphy's Laws still apply to on-board electronics) the Starpath Weather Trainer Live offers a dynamic, hands-on way to identify and analyze the eternal natural signs of wind, sea, and sky. You'll learn how to use your barometer to its full potential, recognize clouds and their meanings, interpret changes in wind and sea conditions, and how to mold these observations into a realistic picture of existing and impending weather. And you'll learn how to use these observations to evaluate and fine tune official reports and weather maps.
The Starpath Weather Trainer Live is a revolutionary, easy-to-use teaching tool and resource which will forever change the way weather skills are taught. This powerful, interactive computer course gives you the working skills that would normally take years to acquire. It provides practical, thorough training that is both memorable and valuable. From weather basics for the beginner to advanced topics for seasoned mariners, the Weather Trainer Live can make anyone a more competent mariner.
