Unfortunately your licence key has been shared with others. and you were warned of this breach of the licensing conditions on May 10th, 2013. Shortly thereafter another breach was detected, at which point your licence was revoked. Note licences are single user and so cannot be shared.

Hi,  I am busy to build up my new laptop, since my old XP machine from 2008 collapsed. Had no problem installing Meteoscan Pro on my Windows 8.1 machine. Program seems to run o.k. as well.  However after sending in my activation request I got the following reply:
Dear Henk Arends,
Thank you for your message to CAR, the CombiTech Activation Robot.
Unfortunately your Activation Request cannot be processed because this licence has been cancelled. For more information please contact your reseller or find the support link for your product at
This is an automated email, you cannot reply.

Is there any solution?

Thanks for your support.

Hi Claude, it's been a long time since I heard the word Multiscan Smiley. There is no pdf, in fact I wonder if that format even existed in the time I designed that modem. I think the original documentation is made with WordPerfect.. I no longer have any of those files at hand, maybe somewhere on a floppy disk in a dusty archive! I thought I still had it on paper somewhere but cannot find it either. Keep in mind the design is probably 20+ year old and was later replaced with the (better) DSP. Ironically enough I still have spare parts and even pcbs.

However, leave it up to certain individuals to show no respect for my copyright and publish my work on the internet et voila: here is the schematic and DIN pin configuration:

A long time ago, I bought a Combitech Multiscan equipment.
I used it for a couple of weeks but had to stop my hobby for professional reason.
Now that I am retired, I want to do "my comeback" on the air.
I still have the Combitech but I lose the manual.
Is it possible to have it again in a pdf format ?

As I see at the rear, there is a RS-232 connector.

Current laptops have no more RS-232. Would it be possible to use a RS232 to USB connector ?
To connect to the transceiver there is a 5 pin DIN connector but I lose the cable. I suppose that the cabling will be on the manual (if it still exists of course).

Thanks for answer,

Claude - ON5PS

I would think if you override remote control the radio will do whatever you tell it to do, but I cannot be sure as I am not familiar with this model. Try asking the manufacturer or their support forum.

I am running Mscan under Pactor IIPro (with III upgrade) using an Icom IC-M802 transceiver. When the program comes up, the LCD display on the Icom head changes to "Remote" and the receive frequency display changes to the fax frequency. The transmit frequency display stays at the original frequency (that is, the frequency active before bringing up Mscan). If I hit Tune on the radio head, the "TX" characters flash next to the frequency shown in the transmit display area. But that is the original frequency, not the fax frequency. Which station is actually getting tuned?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your quick response. Actually, there were other requests (dated 2011) for this enhancement (see thread

As I mentioned in my email, I was able to communicate with the pactor 4 -- and the program did change the station according to the schedule.

However, the signal monitor visual in the upper right corner of the program briefly flashes
a frozen signal pattern and then disappears. The program does not receive the fax when
the start signal is emitted and the manual start button also has no effect.

I can give you more details on the messages displayed and lights showing in the
pactor if that would help.

After this failure, I switched to Airmail and was able to manually receive the fax.
That fax software does not support the auto scheduling feature that you do and is a less
attractive option.

I don't know what would be involved in extending MSCAN to support the new Pactor, but it seems
the program is really close to supporting it. As people buy pactors (or upgrade from older pactors once they stop working) they will want the newer pactor version. It sure would be great to be able to use MSCAN with the new hardware.

Hi Kandb, welcome to the forum. This is not a bug so I have moved your post to the Feature Requests forum. It is unfortunate the developers of the pactor modems find it necessary to keep breaking compatibility, and I have asked them many times not to do this. In vain. As you can see you are the first to request this so it is not likely support for new pactor modems will be added soon. Please note reception will be much better when using the sound card, which is why most of my clients take this route whether they own a pactor modem or not.

I'll keep monitoring the votes this request gets.

We just upgraded from the Pactor IIPro and cannot get MSCAN to work. The sound card solution is not a
feasible option, as it doesn't support automatic scheduling.

We noticed a thread from a few years ago discussing compatibility of Mscan with the Pactor 4 modems. At the
time, you mentioned you may support this modem if you got enough requests.

We've used Mscan since 2002 (upgrading in 2005 and 2012) and really love the program. We are running the
latest version of Mscan available from your website.

Any chance you will add support for Pactor 4?

I checked my files and cannot find a licence in your name, nor can I find anything for your email address. So either it is a very long time ago, or you are confused and mean some other program (as Mscan Meteo does not decode SSTV). Whatever the case, I cannot help you other than suggesting to buy the latest version.
