Rochester Amateur Radio Association (RARA) will also have their station K2R from the grounds of the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse for the 2016 International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend. This annual Amateur Radio weekend event was founded in 1995 by 2 members of the AYR Amateur Radio Group, AARG, Scotland and held on the 3rd full weekend in August. This year’s event takes place August 20 & 21 - Duration 48 hours from 0001 UTC 20.8.2016
This is not a contest, it is simply a fun event to highlight lighthouses and lightships around the world.

The 2015 weekend was disappointing do to poor conditions on the airwaves. Here is a weekend summary:
 63 contacts in US and Canada
 22 States
 11 Lighthouses
 2 Lightships
