Listen out and sign up (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

enlist

Here is my best explanation:

'sign up' is the definition.

(enlisting is a kind of signing up)

'listen out' is the subsidiary indication.

'out' indicates anagramming the letters.

'listen' with letters rearranged gives 'enlist'.

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for enlist that I've seen before include "Recruit", "Draft", "Enrol in the services", "Join up, sign on", "Join the armed forces", "Engage", "Take the Queen's shilling", "Be silent to join up", "Enrol - recruit" and "Join the military".)
