I am new to this hobby. I have saved and bought an antenna and hoped I will be able to enjoy the WXtoIMG program . I was even going to "pay" for the upgrade. Now to find out it is not upgradeable to enjoy the full benefit or  supported is very disappointing.
I tried Satsignal and picked up a nice computer virus. What is a good alternative?

Hi Bushman. I really can't answer that one, perhaps others out there know the answer. However if you are able to establish a working 'key' I for one would be grateful. I have respect for Craig and his awesome programme and I suspect that just because he offered it for free, does not mean he cannot change his mind at any time. Gary

Hi ChristopherD, The basic free edition is still worth having and working with, especially if you are new to polar orbiting satellite downlink receiving. Take a look at my images from today (http://www.stoneyfield.co.uk/wxtoimg/) If you are not already a member, it's well worth joining GEO (http://www.geo-web.org.uk/) they have great advice on all things satellite and how to set up a receiver and software.

Kevin, I have two editions running on two different ps's. both windows 10 64bit. One is 2.11.2 beta and the other is 2.10.11. I also dug out and old XP laptop we had in the office and tried both editions, but no joy. Thank you. Gary

Hi Kevin, thanks a lot! with your info I was able to switch to the licensed version and control my Icom pcr2500.

Thanks !

I have  keys that works with 2.10.11 or the beta 2.11.02,  since Craig put up keys on the website to "open" it up for free, I don't see a problem putting up one of mine here, this is case sensitive so copy carefully or cut and paste,  Kevin Schuchmann  CGHZ-PP9G-EAJZ-AWKK-NDNX

I am running WXtoImg with Windows10 and, thanks to Kevin Schuchmann, I have the full version up and running. Make sure that you use the exact username and Key. I suggest you cut and paste each, use the info after the : for each. The info Kevin supplied is

Username      :Kevin Schuchmann 
WXtoimg KEY :CGHZ-PP9G-EAJZ-AWKK-NDNX

I hope this helps.

Gary,
I was looking at your NOAA images.  Very nice!  I wanted to let you know about an option I found...  I you click on Options in and then Crop Telemetry...  it will!

Cheers and happy WXing.
