Getting GRIB files via Iridium go

Recommended Posts

Hi

We are trying to receive GRIB files from saildocs.com to our infiniti-za@myiridiam.net email account. We receive the file however when we try to open it the application says it is damaged. We have increased the incoming message size to allow for the larger message in the configuration.

If we connect over a 3g / 4g network to a gmail account the GRIB file are fine. My assumption is therefore that something in the Iridium mailbox that alters the file.
We are using a newly purchased Iridium Go.

Are you able to assist?

Best regards
Ken Nelson

Hi Ken,

 

On which platform are you doing all that, Android or iOS?

 

Iridium Mail & Web normally just sends the file to qtVlm without changing it, so it seems that the file is corrupted before that. What exactly do you request to saildocs? Can you send me the grib file (maitai<at>virtual-winds.org) so I can have a look at what is wrong with it (just forward it to me from IMW if possible).

 

Regards,

Philippe.
