Come on down to Point Robinson lighthouse Saturday August 20th from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. for International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend.“ (ILLW) The Point Robinson Lighthouse is located at the tip of Maury Island. W7VMI wishes to thank the Vashon Parks District for allowing the club to set up our trailer and operate near the lighthouse.
The ILLW takes place on the 3rd full weekend in August each year and attracts over 500 lighthouse entries located in over 40 countries. It is one of the most popular international amateur radio events in existence probably because there are very few rules and it is not the usual contest type event. It is also free and there are no prizes for contacting large numbers of other stations.
See the club calendar for a map and additional detail.
