    Are you using Internet Explorer 10 on your computer? If so, please upgrade to IE11 and you will be able to register. Most web sites no longer accept IE10 due to security issues.

    Hi John:  thanks for the tip.  i do not use Internet Explorer on this new PC that I just bought for "shack use only".  My problem disappeared when I finally did something correctly (?) and registration suddenly took place and suddenly my screen lit up.  The 6500 is back on the air and just worked somebody on 40 CW, all seems dandy now except propagation of course lousy.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
