HF Volmet Broadcasts

Ever tuned the HF aeronautical bands and stumbled across automated voice broadcasting weather info for various cities? If so, then you most likely heard a VOLMET station. VOLMET, or meteorological information for aircraft in flight, is the term applied to a worldwide network of radio stations that broadcast TAF, SIGMET and METAR reports on shortwave frequencies. In addition to helping pilots find weather at airports, these stations are a great resource for SWL listeners to check propagation conditions to various parts of the world.

Posted below is my collection of audio clips for Volmet stations that have been monitored at my location in Southern California.
