Lighthouse Weekend at Verona-Sylvan Beach
Just a polite reminder that this Saturday and Sunday is International Lighthouse / Lightship Weekend. I will be setting up an amateur station at the Verona Beach Lighthouse on 4th avenue in Verona-Sylvan Beach. I plan on beginning set up at about 8:00am on Saturday and operating continuously through 5 pm Sunday. (Weather permitting …. My R7 and Thunderstorms do NOT play well together). All are welcome and the event is 100% free! The Verona Beach light has been beautifully restored to its original splendor by the Verona Beach Lighthouse Association! Please come out and see their fine work and maybe work my rig awhile and make some other lighthouse / lightship contact. To date there are over 450 lighthouses and lightships signed up to have amateur stations around the world!! By Saturday it will easily top 500!!
Thanks and hope to see you there or at least make a contact
on the air! J
