Southgate Amateur Radio News rapporterar att 355 fyrar världen över i dagsläget finns anmälda till Internationella fyrhelgen nästa helg. Fortfarande finns endast tio svenska fyrar med på årets deltagarlista. Southgate skriver:
With 10 days to go 355 entries for the 2018 International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend amateur radio event have been received.
Last year the 400th entry came in on 15th August, 4 days before the event, and at start time 453 had been entered on the web site. Organisers are expecting another 100 entries to be received over the next 10 days.
Leading the field is Germany with 57 entries, followed by the UK with 52, Australia 48 and USA 46. Trinidad and Tobago sent in an entry a few days ago for Galera Point Lighthouse under the call 9Z4M, Gibraltar has been a regular entrant for many years from Europa Point lighthouse, callsign ZB2LGT. Barbados Amateur Radio Society has entered two lighthouses,, South Point and Ragged Point.
A request has been submitted to the authorities for some decent propagation this year so here’s hoping.
