A fun ham radio event - don't miss it

The International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend (ILLW) will be held on 15
& 16 August and was started in 1999 by the late by Mike Dalrymple GM4SUC of
the Ayr Amateur Radio Group in Scotland.

Some 350 registrations in some 50 countries have been received so far but
there's still time for more radio clubs and individuals to register, or
make plans to work lighthouses on the ham bands.

Clubs find it a great activity either as a portable operation or to just
see how many lighthouses members can be contact on the weekend.

It is always held on the 3rd full weekend in August starting at 0001 UTC on
Saturday and finishing at 2359 UTC on Sunday, which is also International
Lighthouse Day organised by the International Association of Lighthouse
Keepers as a public event.

For more information or to register visit the official Ayr Amateur Radio
Group website ILLW.NET
