If you think you are ready for providing communication assistance at any time then give it a try. You will be surprised at all the things that can go wrong, or right if you plan well. A great way is to combine your trial with a contest. The most appropriate is the John Moyle.

The aim is to encourage portable operation, and provide training for emergency situations. The rules are therefore designed to encourage field operation. The contest takes place on the 3rd full weekend in March and runs from 0100 UTC Saturday to 0059 UTC Sunday, 17-18 March 2007.

This is your chance for a time away from home, play radios, and test your skills. You will meet a lot of fellow amateurs as well. Enter either the 6 hour or the 24 hour section. Designed for you to enjoy, so send your logs to Denis Johnstone VK4AIG / VK3ZUX and make sure he has plenty to do as Contest Manager.

Details and the official 2007 rules can be found here on the WIA website.
