2017 ILLW DA2017LH

 

Hello Hams,

we are proud to announce you our new hamradio activity. We are participating on the international Lighthouse/Lightship Weekend 2017.

The event is accomplished by members of the radio club Karlsruhe (A07) and Dresden (S01). Each QSO will be confirmed with the Special DOK ILLW17 (for DOK hunters). The lighthouse and the island referenz number will be confirmed with a special designed QSL card. Fluegge lighthouse which is located on Fehmarn Island EU-128 has following  reference numbers. The ILLW is DE0008 / FED-085 / GLHA-19.

The lighthouse is a very impressive construction and has a total height of 38m. It was built in 1914-1915 and went in traffic 1916.

We will be QRV from 10m down to 80m with different types of antennas (see below). The modes are SSB and CW. The whole team is now 100% complete and ready for rocking on the HF-bands. The operators are DJ2HD, DH3WO, DJ2BQ and DL3DXX.

The trailer packing procedure is now done. The cover needs to be on top and we are on the road…
