McMurdo’s New Navtex

If you’re looking for a way to have (pdf, p13) alerts of new shipwrecks highlighted on your electronic charts in real-time, McMurdo has the answer…
“The receiver has a RS422 data output, which enables it to be integrated into an electronic chart display (ECDIS) – which automatically converts the safety warning into an alert which is displayed on the chart (for example indicating a new shipwreck). The electronic chart software can scan the message for a latitude and longitude reference.”
