International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend

We are excited to be activating the wonderful, historic Fort Point Lighthouse and Museum for this year's event.

The lighthouse is located on the Lahave River in southwest Nova Scotia, Canada

We plan to arrive on-site around 9:00 am on Saturday, Aug 21st and operate until around 5:00 pm.

We will be operating mostly on 20 and 40M SSB with vertical antennas and one or two transceivers using our Club call: VE1LUN

We hope to work you on the air, if we do, a QSL will be available from eQSL or if requested, we can provide our regular QSL card.

And if you are in the area, please drop by for a visit, the Lighthouse is open to the public and there is no charge for admission.

Although not strictly ham-radio related, this site is still a lot of fun. 

Called Radio Garden,  you can select from thousands of broadcast stations 

anywhere around the world.

Just move the globe to the area you want with your mouse

 then zoom in to find the stations.

Give it a try at this link.
