My local club will be running a special event station N1EV from an
island off the coast of Connecticut. This island is not populated and
is owned by a local maritime muesuem. It has an intact lighthouse
that was built in colonial times. John, N1OLO, was able to get the
island activated for the first time as part of the World Lighthouse
Award. The lighthouse number is LH 2712. Since it is an island it
also qualifies for IOTA with a number of NA-136.
Look for us on Sunday September 30, 2001 from about 10am to 5pm. We
will be running PSK on 20, 15 and 10 as well as SSB and CW depending
on conditions and operators.
Be one of the first to work this brand new lighthouse number and
fairly rare IOTA number in one shot.
