ROTO 85? And I thought ROTO 3 in Kabul was cushy.

It doesnt sound that way from up here. It has been speculated (in public) that the whole Canadian contingent will be moved to Kandahar.  :cdn:
Speculation is the key word.  I've heard from many sources that there will be 2 missions, Kabul will be under ISAF and the PRT will be under OEF.

Hey any Reserve SigOps -- How long did it take you before you were qualified to be deployed overseas? (In approximate years.)

Years? As far as I know you can be deployed on tour as a sig op after you complete your 3s. The more experience/ courses you have, the better though... You usually do your 3s the summer after basic. However remember, just because you apply for a tour doesn't mean you'll necessarily get it...

Also, in regards to tours...you also need your security clearance, which right now is taking a long time to get..

Actually, for Roto 0 they gave everyone who needed it a blanket clearance. It was only god for the length of the tour but it allowed everyone to go.

If you apply for tour, and they accept you for pre-deployment training, they'll expedite your clearance. The guys from my unit on EW Surge without their clearances were bumped up to get them before they were sent off, took only a few months at the most.

Sadly, the little r isn't a high priority for clearances from CSIS.

If you don't have a clearance, you should not be on pre-deployment trg.  That is one of the items to select people before they go on training to relieve people who had to be replaced on tour.
