The event is NOT a contest, each station decides how they will operate their station regards modes and bands. Participants are not committed to being on the air during the entire period - only as much as they can.

There is no restrictions on aerials or power. We wish operators to enjoy themselves and have fun whilst making contact with as many amateur radio stations as possible. Some operators say fun - 5,000 contacts - OK, but  we request that stations take some time to work the slow operator, the newly licensed and QRP stations. As available space in many lighthouses is filled to capacity, our activity does not have to take place inside the tower itself. Fieldday type set-up at the light or other building next to the light is OK. Permission MUST be obtained from any interested parties.

The event is used to obtain maximum exposure for our hobby. We invite the press and, QTH permitting, also the public and try to underline the obvious parallel between the international aspect in lighthouses, lightships and amateur radio. We might catch a future radio amateur while creating goodwill for the hobby.

We use the event segment of the 5 'Classic' bands with a centre frequency if conditions are bad, at least we have one place we can (try to) meet. 

We request that the centre frequencies are not used as primary frequencies but as a last point of call to other participating stations. 

CW
80m 3.510 - 3.540 kHz Centre 3.521 +/-
40m 7.005 - 7.035 7.021 +/-

PHONE
80m 3.650 - 3.750 kHz Centre 3.721 +/-

20m 14.125 - 14.275 14.221 +/-
15m 21.150 - 21.250 21.221 +/-
10m 28.300 - 28.400 28.351 +/-

Stations in the Americas can operate on 40m and 80m anywhere legally in the band.

To assist other stations we request that participating stations add 'LIGHT', 'LGT' , 'LIGHTHOUSE' or 'LIGHTSHIP' after their call.

Join in the fun.
