The next planned WICEN event is the stand at the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club's Wyong Field Day on Sunday, 28th February 2016.
Members should however remain prepared for activation over the summer period, as until recently this has been the busiest period for incidents.
To join the group intending members should download and print the membership form from the group's website, and mail it back. Most radio clubs will have members who are able to complete the proposal and seconding sections.
The postal address is PO Box 6151, DURAL DC NSW 2158.
The site also lists the organisations repeaters, which are available to all, including those travelling over the holiday period.
