How do I create an account?
1. You will need to sign up for a membership and the account will be created from it.
To sign up using PayPal or a credit card, from the menu bar select Store and Memberships.

If you would rather pay some other way, contact the Membership Chair. Karen Stutz-Miller, KK6GJW.

2. Select the type of membership you wish, Individual, Family or Youth and complete the form.

3. When your registration is processed, you will receive an email with a temporary password link. Click the link and it will take you to the website login where you can change the password to something of your liking.

4. The next time you sign in, enter your call sign and the password you just created and click “Log In”.

5. After logging in, you will be taken back to the homepage. The menu item that used to read “Login/Register” now should read “Welcome [your callsign]”, informing you that you are now logged in.

How do I access the Member Area?

  1. Create an account, if you haven’t already.
  2. Once your account has been verified and you login, you can access the Member Area. Be sure you’re logged in (your callsign will appear in the upper-right corner of the page).

I registered, but I’m still told I don’t have permission to access the Member Area. Why?

One of two things is likely to be happening here. The first thing to check is to make sure you’re logged in. When you’re logged in, your call sign will appear in the upper-right corner of the page. If you’re not logged in, click “Login” in the menu bar. If you are logged in and still can’t access the Member Area, your account may not have been verified yet.

How do I add an event to the calendar?
