Sponsored by Northern Greece Contest Team  

 

 
Award rules

Greek Lighthouse Award has been instituted by the Northern Greece Contest Team and will be issued to any Ham Radio operator or SWL for QSOs with (or reports from) amateur radio stations operating from Greek's lighthouses.

The aim of the award is to encourage and promote amateur radio activity from Greek lighthouses, both by local hams and those from abroad, which also will promote Greek tourism.

The idea for the Greek Lighthouse Award came from Savas, SV2AEL. Design of Diploma came from SV2HRV, Diana and SV2CWV, Kwstas.

  European & Asiatic stations DX stations

Class I 15 Greek Lighthouses 10 Greek Lighthouses
