An amateur radio blog updated regular with my portable and qrp activations & experiences, 2M0ROT

The annual lighthouse activation is nearly here again and yours truly shall be activating my local lighthouse for the 4th year in a row. My location on the 17-18th August will be the ''Perch'' lighthouse in Port Glasgow Ref: UK0200 and I'll be operating on 80, 40, 20 & 10 metre bands.

The weather has been very poor in all my previous activations so I'm hoping for a bit of a break this year..

All details are on the ILLW (international lighthouse lightship weekend) website HERE where you will see the scale of the event, it's a huge weekend in the amateur radio calander.

For anyone who has a QSO with my station there will be an eQSL available to email over.

73 for now

The international lighthouse & light ships weekend has been and gone for another year. I'm glad to report the it was a record breaking event with more activating stations than ever before.

I was based at my local lighthouse, The 'Perch' at Port Glasgow Ref: UK0200 for both days and mostly used 20 & 40m bands. There was a Russian contest running too but vastly out-numbered by ILLW stations.

Please follow the link below to view the video from my mobile van shack.

Working conditions:

Yaesu ft-857, 20m dipole inverted v, 40m vertical whip, 10m fibreglass mast Yaesu ft2de for echolink.
