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:
Ham radio at lighthouse (Crescent City, CA, USA)
Light banter hits the airwaves (Williamstown, Australia)
