Ham Radio in the News – Lighthouse Edition

Montage Lighthouse, Australia

The Hellenic Amateur Radio Association of Australia spent three nights on Montague Island to celebrate International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend.

The weekend of August 20-21 was International Lighthouse Weekend, and as ham radio operators are wont to do, there were a number of special event stations set up at lightouses around the world. I worked three in the U.S. from the WA2HOM and one in Germany from here at my home station.

Here are some news stories about lighthouse operations in various places:
