ILLW Cards on the way

VK3WI ILLW 20018

VK3WI QSL Cards for the event are now on the way (via the VK3 Bureau) to all who made it “in the Log”.

Amateur Radio Victoria participated in the 2018 International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend (ILLW) which was held across the weekend of August 18-19. 440 Lighthouses / Lightships around the world were registered to be activated in this year’s event. ARV elected to set up “Portable”, once again, at the Williamstown Time Ball Tower, which is designated AU-0036.

215 contacts were made across the two days including QSO’s with 19 VK Lighthouses, 1 VK Lightship and 4 ZL Lighthouses. DX contacts were rare this year with only one Russian station exchanging details on 20m. Evidence of current difficult band conditions.
