Interesting e mail I got today....

"As APT is now coming to an end - no new satellites will be launched. You
might like to look at the newer LRPT satellites in the Meteor series"

We know, but it would be nice to run it out with the NOAA POES until they flicker and die.

My apologies for resurrecting an old thread, brand new here. :) This issue has started bugging me; I would GLADLY pay for a key, yet as previously mentioned, the site is down... I am able to get it occasionally working with the released keys if I change the date back to 2015, but it's extremely finicky, and changing the date interferes with other basic operations of the program, like map overlays. :/  RunAsDate doesn't seem to work either.

Has anyone been able to find a solution to this since the last post? Since the owner seems to have released WXtoIMG as freeware, perhaps could someone who purchased the software long ago be willing to search their email for a key?   :grin:

Thank you so much!

(Awesome to know that there are weather enthusiasts out there!  :grin: I'm here from the railroad enthusiast forums; some people say we're the weirdest of the bunch! :P )

I have left the hobby because the software let the process down, the Wraase satellite receiver got biffed and the antenna sold. Your BEST bet is to ask the manufacturer of your receiver for THEIR key, this worked for me but my hardware / software / key are all gone. The key I wouldn't have passed on.
I did inquire about a newer receiver / software for later satellites but the whole arena was of uncertainty. The NOAA LEO satellites are drastically decreasing in number to be replaced with a superior type. Over & out from me , Cheers.
