    For the lighthouse society rules we had to be within sight of the light. I think there is a different lighthouse group that may have that 500m stipulation. Thanks for the info.

    Hi Guys
    Lovely post of the days events, we also have a lighthouse activity weekend here in GD land (Isle of Man) Point of Ayre NX40 NATS A4720 10-06-19.jpg
    This Lighthouse is at the Point of Ayre, the most northerly tip of the Isle of Man. I regularly activate this one and we have to be as close as is
    practical to class as an activation.
    I trust you all had a great day and hope to meet up with you some day on the bands.

    73, de Martyn GD3ZZN
