So, if you have NAVTEX aboard and rely on this technology while out cruising, and this goes forward, you will either have to do without or buy expensive satellite equipment.

From the PBO comments attached to this notice it seems the news is nearly 3 years old, although I had not been aware of it. It appears to involve only the United States and on a quick Google search I can't find anything to suggest that other Sates are to follow suit. Does anyone have any more information?

The PBO comments are old, but the notice was issued today. I would believe that the US will take the lead in this and others will follow.
One can only hope that enough people comment in such a way that NAVTEX is retained, buch like it waswith Loran C.
