Ships Radio Licence

I applied for the new Ships radio Licence on 1 December. Quick question because I had to register and it stated that I would have to wait 5 days for a letter in the post with my new password. I haven't received this yet and its the 10th. Anyone else had the same problem ?
Without the password I can't get access to the radio licence application.

Should I phone them ?

Ditto - probably their system wasn't set up to cope with the sheer volume of applications (i.e more than 10)

I got the letter today.
Once I'd worked out how to use the site I was okay. My Pop up Blocker was causing havoc (Somehow I have 2 - AOL and Google, Thats lucky).

I entered all the details and printed off the 13 sheets. You don't get a Tax Disk like thing anymore, your supposed to carry the full 13 pages round with you.

All the relevant stuff is on the first page so I shall just be carrying that.

For anyone struggling don't forget your Pop Up blocker and the original passwords you used are the ones you need. The bit of paper you recieve just tells you your activated. Don't know why they can't use an E Mail.

Agreed - a confirmation email would have been a lot easier! I still can't get in - claims my userID is not valid. When I attempt to enter details even under the "forgot password" section, it claims it doesn't recognise me.. I know details are correct as I printed out the application form...

Looks like they are having some teething issues.
