International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend 16 -17 August 2014

Dear Sparks,

I would like to remember the coming Great Event of “International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend” on 16-17 August 2014 – Duration 48 hours from 0001 UTC 16.8.2014.

This annual amateur radio event was started in Scotland by John Forsyth, GM4OOU, and the late Mike Dalrymple (GM4SUC), both members of Ayr Amateur Radio Group (AARG). Through the years the event has grown probably far beyond what John and Mike envisaged for it all those years ago. The fact that some 85 countries have been represented in this event since inception clearly shows that it is well on its way to becoming a premier event on the ham radio calendar.

A really nice event to enter in touch with lighthouses and lightships all over the World, for accurate infos visit: http://www.illw.net/

Best regards and Have GUD WATCH!
