A milestone for the ILLW scored in the USA
The West Side Amateur Radio Club of Los Angeles W6A is the 200th registration for this year's International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend with its members to set up at the Port Fermin Lighthouse.
The Stick Style lighthouse is an early Victorian architectural method characterised by its gabled roofs, horizontal siding, decorative cross beams and hand carved porch railings. A decade ago the lighthouse was restored.
The entry by the West Side Amateur Radio Club put the USA on 28 registrations, behind Australia with 38 and Germany 33, followed by England 16, and The Netherlands on 13 with the total countries so far involved nearing 30.
International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend in a fun event. It will be held for the 15th time on August the 18th and 19th. Check it out and register for the weekend by visiting the website ILLW.NET
