What a contest weekend!  According to Jim Linton (VK3PC), the ILLW had 541 registrations from 56 countries, setting a new record in the annual event designed to promote awareness of the world’s historic lighthouses and lightships.  The USA went all out this year, with 91 amateur radio stations participating.  First time portable operations from former maritime navigational stations totaled more than 100.  Jim says, “Already, 30 registrations are listed for the ILLW 2015 event, which will be held 15-16 August.”  You can’t argue with success.  Great job by everyone.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
