Successful Ham Radio Weekend

Art Gunn and Sterling Carpenter were very happy with the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend when they set up their ham radio equipment at Swallowtail August 14-16.

Approximately 162 people visited with Art and Sterling, asking great questions both about the event and also what we are trying to do at Swallowtail. The atmospheric conditions were not as conducive to the radio frequencies as might be expected but Art and Sterling were able to talk to a few others set up at lighthouses around the world.

Given the great respond, we expect this to be an annual event so keep the third weekend in August next year open if you wish to participate.
