SPECIAL EVENT :
August 14th starting at 00:01 Zulu for 48 hours. LCWO will be operating for the ILLW International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend. The three man team will depart Lorain Sailing Club marina by boat for lighthouse number US0143 USA-453 at 2pm Friday afternoon. The team will leave with enough gear to operate from 80 through 10m with four stations on the air. The team plans to operate on all bands and all modes including SSB, CW, and digital modes. The team plans to set up antennas Friday afternoon to be on the air for event start. They will use the club call NW8S and will have operators on the air around the clock. Local operators can coordinate HF on the simplex frequency of 146.505 which they will be monitoring during certain time slots of the event. They also plan to engage in local simplex on 2M FM, and local analog machines as well. The team will have enough supplies to last for 3 days at the lighthouse and plan to depart Sunday afternoon. This will mark the second time an amateur radio station has ever operated from the lighthouse and the second time in decades that the structure will be occupied overnight. Our team of operators would like to mention that this event, under certain weather conditions, could be very hazardous and set up times could be delayed pending weather.
