On entering the circuit, the pilot attempted to cancel his sarwatch but could not contact flight service on the aircraft's VHF radio. He attempted to relay the request through another aircraft but this was also unsuccessful. The pilot then transferred to HF radio and was able to cancel sarwatch. During this period, the pilot was also communicating with other circuit traffic. These distractions led to him forgetting to extend the landing gear and the aircraft landed wheels-up.
