Lighthouse Day

Our club plans to activate Macquarie Light again this year for the International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend on Saturday August 22.

We’ll be setting up portable in the surrounding grounds with plenty of room for social distancing!

Active bands will be most likely 40M and 20M in CW and SSB, running on battery power.

Even if you can’t come and join us on the clifftops at Vaucluse, there will be plenty of lighthouse stations on air to make an interesting day’s listening.

WARS has been activating Macquarie – the first lighthouse in Australia – since 2003.
