Some features of the site, such as downloads and forums require a user to be logged in. We have disabled the register function on the site for the time being, until we can find a effective way to stop the spammers and hackers. However if you would like to become a member it is quite simple. Just send a email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting membership. You will need to supply your callsign, which will be your username and a valid email so that you can receive your password. The password can be changed once you login, this is recommended.
Being a Amateur radio site i do not think it unreasonable to ask that members use their callsign, After all we should be proud to use it. If you do not have a callsign please request a SWL identity.
