Having problems logging on to the SARL Members-only section, or to the SARL Forum, or the SA QSL system?

Here are a few pointers to assist you.

The SARL Members-only web site and the Forum are two separate systems, and each system has its own user name / password. 

The SA QSL system is open to everyone: SARL Members automatically have access via their Member's logon, while non-members need to obtain a password to use the system.

The SARL Members-only web

  • Your user name for the Members-only web is your callsign, and the initial password is a 5-digit number which is automatically allocated by the SARL administration. Access to these pages is dependent on you continuing to be an SARL member.  If you do not renew your membership at the end of a year, within the grace period, then your access is removed and the password is destroyed.

  • If you wish, you can also set your own custom password in addition to the allocated password above. This password may be any combination of letters and digits, and you can make this a more "friendly" or easier-to-remember password.  To use this feature, first log on using your callsign and existing password as above, and then go to to set up your own personal password. 

  • If you forget your password you can retrieve this by using the Forgot your password? link on the home page, or by going directly to this address: and following the instructions.   Your password/s will be emailed to the address we have on file for you.

The SARL Forum

  • The Forum is open to anyone, and is not affected by whether you are an SARL Member or not. 

  • To use the Forum you need to first register.   This is done by following the Register here! link on the forum Login page. Enter your Callsign as your User Name, and choose an appropriate Password. You may use the same password as you use for the members-only web pages to make it easier to remember.

  • Registration is a two-part process. After submitting the Registration page you need to wait for the Forum Administrator to approve your membership.

The SA QSL System

  • This system allows anyone to log their contacts for purposes of qualifying for the SARL awards (Worked All ZS, All Africa Award and the SARL Top Band Certificate).  

  • SARL Members are automatically registered and simply need to sign in using their Member's password.

  • Non-members need to register before using the system.  This is necessary to ensure that only the holder of the callsign is able to log QSOs on the system.   To register, click on Need to Register? on the main SA QSL page and follow the instructions.
