Member HELP

Here are a few Questions and Answers that may be helpful to CARC Members who were on holiday when we introduced the concept of putting private club information behind the password protected MEMBER AREA page.

If you are puzzled by the screen that asks you to enter your password then this page is going to be helpful  for you.


Q1.)  I am a member of the Cumberland Amateur Radio Club.  I am an infrequent user of this website and a bit forgetful.  I would really enjoy reading the content that has been protected behind the Member Area Password.  But, I am drawing a blank when I try to remember the password.  Can you help me?

•Grace Underfyre


A1.)  Absolutely. 

If you have your Membership Card nearby please look on the back.  There you will find something that may ring a bell.


Or, another option is to please eMail your password / access request to:

He will send the Member Area Password to the eMail address we have for you in our membership records.


Q2.)  There is so much great content on this website that i simply don’t know where to begin.  I am somewhat overloaded.  Can you point me to a simple starting point?

• Les Moore


A2.)  Thank you for that great question.  Good places to begin include the following:

• What’s New.  Link to this page from the box having the same name near the top of our Home Page.  Once you are in the What’s New page you will see summaries and links to our newest content.

• News  – Tops Stories  (This leads to our Blog).  Link to this page from the Main Menu bar.

• Member Area >> Member What’s New.  Similar to the general public version of What’s New, this page contains highlights of the new content that is focused on the interests of our Members .


Q3.)  I am SO far behind in paying my annual membership dues.  I am worried that you are going to kick me out of the club.  How can I pay my dues and get back on track?

• Will Paysune


A3.)  Since you are “here” I know that you have access to the club website.  Follow the menu bar options to JOIN US >> MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION.  Scroll down until you see the information you are seeking.

If you do not have access to the club website please email Club Administrator AF3I requesting Annual Membership Dues Payment Options.

Short Version of what you will find:

1.)  You can pay your annual dues by mailing a $10 check to our Membership Secretary, N3EPY.  I am reluctant to post personal mailing addresses here on the website.  You can initiate eMail contact with our Membership Secretary, and request USPS mailing address information, by sending your eMail to:

2.)  You can use our Square Payment option to pay your $10 annual dues plus a modest $1 convenience fee for a total payment amount of $11.  Contact Newsletter Editor / Website Administrator AF3I and request that he eMail you a Membership Dues Payment Invoice. 


You can pay the invoice from the convenience of your in-Box with just a few clicks. 

Please Note:  You are encouraged to take responsibility for your own data security.  Do not send CARC electronic payments to anyone other than AF3I and do so only when you know you have initiated a request.  Never give money in response to an unsolicited request.

AF3I will NEVER ask you to send him any payments via gift cards.  If someone asks you to send gift cards to pay a bill, that just might be a scam.  Beware !

Q4.)   I was trying to do the right thing by answering my own question through use of the SEARCH TOOL.  That tool usually does a good job, but it did not find any of the content that I know darned well appears somewhere in the MEMBER AREA.  What gives?

• Maya Results-Knotfound


A4.)  Your website administrator finds himself between a rock and a hard place.  The MEMBER AREA pages are configured with a Password Required setting.  We use this setting to limit access to certain information that we are willing to share with our own Members, but not with “the whole world”.  When the SEARCH TOOL encounters password protected pages it does not drill into the page content.  Even though you know that the information exists somewhere in the Member Area, the search tool is unable to access those pages and returns nothing.
