NavProc is a Navtex mesage logging, filtering and display program. It allows selection of the display of received messages by either station ID and/or message type. It takes data from a separate reciever/decoder via the PCs COM port, and can also process captured text files of messages. It was developed for use with my home-brew Navtex stand-alone receiver, based on a design by Klaus Betke. Maps showing the location of Navtex stations can be displayed. The data files containing the station details can easily be updated with a text editor. The install package includes a manual in pdf format.
System requirements: Windows 98 or later, 800x600 screen, PC COM port.
The latest version 2.4 incorporates recent changes in NavAreas in the Polar regions.
Download the NavProc package (navproc.zip about 1.7 MB)
Once downloaded, unpack to a temporary directory and run setup.exe. Read the manual before running the program!
