Frequencies marked with * are not in operation 24 hrs a day. Frequencies in parentheses are those to tune your radio to (set on your dial), using USB (upper single side band) setting. Standard transmissions use 120 LPM (Lines Per Minute), though some stations with Russian equipment use 60 and 90 LPM.

bullet A list of HF fax stations is here

Below (left hand) is a weather fax that I received from the Northwood, UK station on 11084.6 kHz USB on 6-august-06. I used MixW software to receive it. MixW is a great multimode package, but unfortunately is does not store or capture complete fax images. So you have to do a screen capture several times per full image (e.g., via CTL-ALT-PrintScreen), and then piece together the partial images in some graphics tool. Below (left to right) are weather faxes that I received from Northwood/UK (8038.1 kHz USB on 16-july-08), Offenbach/Germany (13880.6 kHz USB on 17-July-08), and Halifax/Canada (13507.9 kHz, USB on 19-July-08). I used the demo version of JVComm32 to receive them. JVComm32 is also multimode ("only" FAX, RTTY, SYNOP, NAVTEX, SSTV), but it does save entire fax images. The full-feature demo version is free, but prints the word "demo" in the received image (not a problem). A complete image transmission takes over 10 minutes!

HF Time & Frequency Standard Stations

bullet click here (S-Meter) or here (NIST) or here (HOKA).
bullet I often use a Russian time station at 15 MHz (tuned to 14996 kHz USB) to calibrate my Hellschreiber, SSTV, and other ham digi-mode software. Click here for a write-up by GØHWC on how to do this. Depending on propagation conditions, I sometimes use a 10 MHz time station (tuned to 9996 kHz CWU).
