Q: What does going “paperless” mean?
Selecting “paperless” on your account means that you will receive all correspondence by email and have access to and Antenna magazine online instead of by mail. Members can read the latest Antenna issues here when logged into their member account.
Q: I didn’t receive a physical copy of Antenna magazine in the post this quarter?
RES Members, Student Members, Fellows and Honorary Fellows have access to the latest volumes of Antenna magazine before hardcopies hit their doormats. If you have not received a hard copy of Antenna, you have either paused or cancelled your membership, or you are likely not opted-in to receive them.
Visit my account – my profile and select ‘no’ to Go Paperless to ensure you receive physical copies of Antenna going forward. Here, you can also opt-in to our monthly Members Exclusive newsletter.
This is also a good opportunity to make sure your address is up to date and appears correctly.

Q: Can I renew without logging in?
Paying your subscription renewal through the website is the quickest and safest way to pay. However, we can still accommodate bank transfers, cheques by post and card payments by phone. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: My username is not the same as it was on your old website.
Due to the data migration from the old website to our new website, usernames may have changed to display as your name (as entered by you when you first signed up as a member) and your membership number instead of appearing as your email address. This is to provide a more personalised experience to your membership area.
Q: My Membership is not showing the accurate timeframe on how long I’ve been a Member or Fellow.
If your membership area shows as the wrong ‘Member since’ date, please contact email@example.com and we can change this to better represent your longevity with the society.
