ILLW 2019 - Activation Announcement
18 Aug 2019
Unfortunately activations have been cancelled due to family emergency... :-( Hope we can activate a lighthouse or two during the coming weekends and have better luck with ILLW activations
next year :-(

During this year's International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend (ILLW), I'm planning to visit three lighthouses in
Cyprus activating each one for about 2 hours.
This will be a one or two day trip to three lighthouses. I'll be using simple equipment - no linear amplifiers or rotating beam antennas - just
plain radios (QRP to 100W max) powered by batteries, with small portable or mobile antennas.
I'll be working SSB on the 20m band.
Estimated lighthouse activation times:
- Saturday, 17 Aug. 0800 - 1000 GMT: Cape Kiti (CYP-004)
- Sunday, 18 Aug. 0500 - 0700 GMT: Paphos Point (CYP-005)
- Sunday, 18 Aug. 0900 - 1100 GMT: Cape Akamas (CYP-001)
I'll be using callsign 5B8AP/P. QSL via 5B8AP. See QRZ.com for more information.
Hint: Check for 5B8AP-9 on APRS.fi to see if I've reached the lighthouse ;-)
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
