The only "testing sessions" I can think of there, involve trying to
outrun bullets!   Sadly, not with much success it seems.   In any case,
would anyone actualy "want" to run a ham station out there?  You'd make
yourself a nice fat target for all concerned.  As it's a sad fact that
some of the "Peace keeping" forces there are less than profficient at
identifying Friend vs Foe.
