I'm not sure what process you are using to register.

In England we are asked to register via the nearest repeater, but not alp offer this facility on their website. As such, Icom UK will arrange registration. However, I haven't found this facility on the USA website.

The main way is to register via http://www.dstargateway.org/D-Star_Registration.html which proved difficult for me, hence my approach to Icom.

There is an email address on the opening page, in case you are experiencing difficulties.

I do know that many organisations do not allow Yahoo or Gmail addresses, as an awful lot of worldwide scams tend to emanate from such addresses.

If you don't have an alternative try emailing the help address.

Kind regards,
