Thanks guys for all the suggestions which I will follow up and hopefully can resolve next week.  I did include my name and c/s when attempting to register  so I wonder what has gone wrong.

USA has been a tough call from here in the ARRL 10M contest. Florida apart  I have managed only 3 States, all east coast, hope tomorrow is better out that way. Good rates for EU & Asia earlier but the band died pretty much  at 15.00 local time (13.00z) when the band is barely open Stateside.

73  Brian C4Z / 5B4AIZ.

Hello Brian,

please contact Steve KG6HJU (steve_wilson at yahoo.com) and ask for help. He is one of the moderators of that group. I had the very same problem, as my name and callsign have been dropped by the buggy Yahoo system during the approval process. So they had no clue if I was an ham radio operator or some kind of spam bot. Steve helped me and approved by 2nd subscription.
