The next planned WICEN event is the stand at the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club's Wyong Field Day on Sunday, 28th February 2016.

While not strictly a WICEN Northern Rivers event, the Summerland Amateur Radio Club will be involved in The Great Eastern Fly-In, held at the Evans Head Memorial Aerodrome on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of January. SARC will be assisting with airband communications, and will have a stall showcasing Amateur Radio. Event details are at:

Members should however remain prepared for activation over the summer period, as until recently this has been the busiest period for incidents.
