How do I access the Member Area?

  1. Create an account, if you haven’t already.
  2. After you create your account, it must be verified to ensure you are a current member. You will receive an email when your account has been verified. There is nothing you need to do to verify your account.
  3. Once your account has been verified, 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 callsign 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.
