International Lighthouse/Lightship Weekend

00:01 UTC Sat 18-Aug-07 to 23:59 UTC Sun 19-Aug-07

This weekend radio activity is sponsored by the Ayr Amateur Radio Group and participants from around 51 different countries join the event.
The IOMARS will have a station operating from the Point of Eyre (WAB NX40, IO74TB).
This is not a contest but has been developed to “Promote Public awareness of lighthouses and lightships and their need for preservation and restoration. Also to promote Amateur Radio and to foster International goodwill”.
