In my experience, I can say with certainty that spending time running in
a contest is excellent preparation for operating as a Net Control
Station during and emergency. The hours spent handling Sweepstakes
exchanges reinforces a level of discipline needed to accurately handle
H&W traffic during a relief operation that comes during an after a
natural catastrophe. If one is ready to face it, one usually arrives at
recognizing the part of the equation that usually needs the most
improvement is... the OPERATOR.
