International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend - ILLW

Normally held on the 3rd full weekend in August

00.01 UTC 22nd August to 2400 UTC 23rd August 2020 (48 hours)

(Note change of weekend out of respect for those commemorating the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Pacific (VP) day on 15th August 2020)

For some reason or other August seems to have become the international weekend for lighthouses. Countries all over the world have become involved in one for or another of lighthouse activity. Some years ago the United States Congress declared August 7th as their National Lighthouse Day and during that first week in August amateur radio operators in America set up portable stations at lighthouses and endeavour to make contact with each other. This event is known as the US National Lighthouse Week.

In Britain the Association of Lighthouse Keepers, ALK, conducts International Lighthouse Heritage Weekend on the same weekend as the ILLW in August. Their objective is to encourage Lighthouse managers, keepers and owners to open their lighthouse or lightstation and related visitors centres to the public with a view to raising the profile of lighthouses, lightvessels and other navigational aids, and preserving our maritime heritage.

However, the major event which takes place in August is the International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend, ILLW, which came into being in 1998 as the Scottish Northern Lights Award run by the Ayr Amateur Radio Group. The history of this event can be found elsewhere on this site. The ILLW usually takes place on the 3rd full weekend in August each year and attracts over 500 lighthouse entries located in over 40 countries. It is one of the most popular international amateur radio events in existence probably because there are very few rules and it is not the usual contest type event. It is also free and there are no prizes for contacting large numbers of other stations. There is little doubt that the month of August has become "Lighthouse Month" due largely to the popularity and growth of the ILLW.

Please note, an ILLW Flyer is available for download and printing if you want to hand out to visitors. See links in sub menu on the left.

Cape Campbell is on a rather exposed promontory on the East Coast of the South Island, about 40 – 50 km south of Picton. It is thus somewhat at the mercy of the weather. In previous years we have had very good weather and therefore the conditions for raising the antennas quite tolerable and even pleasant. One of these years, however, we knew we would strike it rough.  2019 was that year!  A very strong cold wind and steady rain as we left Blenheim to drive south to Cape Campbell was ominous and conditions were no better at the Cape.  Our 40m vertical by the waters edge was more of a 45 degree sloper in the wind and raising a 17m pole for the G5RV dipole not a lot of fun! However, along with a 20m vertical, the antennas acquitted themselves well once we got the station established in the warmth and comfort of the old lighthouse keepers quarters.

We used an IC-706 MkIIG, supplemented occasionally by a linear amplifier when needed.

Activity (or was it conditions?) seemed somewhat less than last year but we did work a number of mainly Australian and other NZ lighthouse stations. Six of us from Marlborough Amateur Radio Club braved the elements and eventually enjoyed a relaxed laid-back weekend at the unusual location.

Incidently, those who have seen the film “Light Between Oceans” will have seen something of the Cape Campbell lighthouse and as that was the location for the film.

Many thanks to the event organisers  -  much appreciated!

Name & Callsign: Steffen, DM6WAN

Message: We had some problems this year 2019.
In Saxony festivities were at the beginning of the school weekend, which prevented some OM's. On the other hand, we were only one day before the ILLW the commitment to use the lighthouse area. Therefore, we could only participate with a small team at short notice and only on Saturday at the ILLW. Especially for our newcomers DO5SMM and DO6JKC it was the first major field day and an opportunity to test their own equipment.
The results were satisfactory for all of us considering the modest antennas (long wire and small vertical antenna, respectively).
We hope to be active again in 2020, then again with "full strength"

 From VK4GHL, Far North Queensland:-Grassy LtHo 2019


We had 6 of us at the lighthouse site 5 Amateurs and a PNG friend.

It was a great weekend and not as windy as usual. We had lots stop by for a talk and see what we were doing.

The Cooktown Historical Society members made us a nice fresh fruit cake and took photo's for the local newspaper.

Once again the Mayor and Cook Shire Council fully supported our efforts - which is very much appreciated.

There was many contacts to other Australian, New Zealand and Malaysian lighthouse stations plus many other stations who wished to contact the Lighthouse Stations - which is great.

We try various transceivers and antenna types each year as part of the experimentation part of our hobby and don't become discouraged by predictions as we always seem to be able to make contacts.

Its a unique Amateur Radio Event that has Social, Technical, Historical and Community attributes which brings our hobby to the community and show them that we are ordinary folk who have a unique hobby.

Thanks to Kevin vk2ce for his long term efforts in guiding the event along the path to the success it now is - these events just don't happen by accident they need "wise heads and a steady hand at the helm".

Thanks to all who took part and we'll be back again next year when it will commemorate the Voyage of HM Barque Endeavour with Lt James Cook RN as Master - they stayed at Cooktown to carry out repairs after running into a reef nearby.

Hi Kevin, I'm 4S6DSI from Sri Lanka Amateur Radio Association.  To commemorate the 22nd "International Lighthouse Day", we got together and celibrated with our members at the Chapel Hill Lighthouse in Trincomalee.  We are thanking you for organizing this and we will hope to meet you next year with another experience. 







 From Italy:- (See Youtube: II1CM 02

My team participated the ILLW for the first time, activating Capo Mele lighthouse IT0030 with the special callsign II1CM.

It was an amazing experience: good propagation conditions, sunny day and a stunning location.

My team will definitively replicate such experience next year

Hi Kevin,

A few photos for you to have a look at from our weekend at Table Cape light house AU0039.
Wayne, VK7NET and myself, Dick VK7DIK  and my XYL Heather had a great weekend.

We arrived early Friday morning with awful weather. It was windy with plenty of rain, really awful.
By the time the guy who was to let us into the Lighthouse turned up the weather had improve and continued to improve and was fairly good for the rest of the weekend.

Table Cape is an excellent spot for radio and we worked a lot of stations. Light house numbers we contacted was down this year. Perhaps we should have a couple of liaison frequencies. We operated mainly on 80 40 and 20 meters. Radio equipment was a ZS6BKW antenna pulled up the side of the Light House. Kenwood TS480 radio and SPE amplifier.

We had several local amateur drop in to see how we were going over the weekend as well as tourists asking us what it was all about.

As I said before, a great weekend.

Cheers, Dick.


From VK3DX, Victoria, Australia:-whalers bluff2whalers bluff1

Organised by Greg (VK3UT); Peter (VK3PAH) and Shaun (VK3VLY) and ably assisted by Scott (VK3FSPN); Robert (VK3ARM); John (VK3FJET); David (VK3HAQ); Paul (VK3HJV); Nick (KV3BA) and Denis (VK3VET).

The “Whaler’s Bluff Amateur Radio DX Group” (VK3DX) used three antennae comprising an 80 metre folded dipole attached to a “Hertical”, a 50 foot fibreglass mast, which according to wind strength was either mostly horizonal or mostly vertical; a 40 metre Spiderbeam and a multiband band Off Centre Fed Dipole. The feeds went through a tuner into an IC-7700 provided by Greg.

There were 87 logged contacts across 80, 40 and 20 metres with 80 metres the most active. Of the contacts 6 were from USA across California, Arizona, Washington (State) and Oregon. Believe it or not the Oregon contact was from Frank in Portland (N7EKD).

Most importantly the group had a great weekend of fellowship with a lot of reminiscing and laughter. The gourmet feasts were provided by Peter and enjoyed by all and washed down with the odd frothy headed cup of tea or coffee.

The group sincerely thanks the managers of the Portland Bay Holiday Park for their kind hospitality and allowing “Hertical” and Spiderbeam to be erected and for the late checkout on Sunday. The spot has been booked for August 2020.

Note 1: N/A in number column means the light does not meet the guidelines.

Note 2:  2019 will be the 15 Consecutive year for VK4GHL at Grassy Hill Light for the Tableland Radio Group. During this time the event has been accepted as a great local event and is supported by Cook Shire Council and the Cooktown History Centre and many visit during the weekend as the people of Cooktown are rightly proud of their lighthouse. The town brought the lighthouse from the government when they were about to shut it down and destroy it. (Well done guys. Admin.)

Note 3: Previously with the radio callsign "SFJ." She was built in 1903 by the Gefle Works and was in service until 1969, when she was decommissioned. Since 1970 she lies anchored outside the Vasamuseet at Djurgården in Stockholm and serves as a museum ship, twinkling her recognition signal: two consecutive flashes every 20 seconds. 
The Lightship FINNGRUNDET is managed by SMM (Statens Maritima Museer), The Swedish National Maritime Museums. 

Note 4: The Skagen luffing lighthouse is now a museum lighthouse and stands on the Oestre Strandvej on the northern outskirts of the city. The experts say the original lighthouse was erected in 1627. On the seesaw is hung a particularly solid basket of iron, which was filled with wood, burned and kept running throughout the night. In the following years they went over to hard coal distillery, whose flame height was lower.
These lighthouses were a great support for the sailors during this time, but they did not shine very far. A copy of the Wippfeuers was set up in Skagen in 1958, completely reconstructed in 2018 and is lit only on each Sankt Hans evening (midsummer night).
The Wippleuchtturm stood 100 years and was replaced in 1747 by the actual lighthouse, which is called the white lighthouse in Skagen.

Note 5: Note 3: Queenscliffe Maritime Museum will again participate in ILLW in 2018, at Point Lonsdale Lighthouse Victoria Australia. A number of activities are traditionally conducted in conjunction with the Geelong Amateur Radio club. These include Flag Raising, sounding of the restored 1928 Fog Horn, tours of the lightstation precinct including guided tours up the lighthouse. The radio club will broadcast from the lighthouse car park both days. All activities are conducted by Queenscliffe Maritime Museum volunteers, by arrangement with the Victorian Ports Corporation which continues to operate the Vessel Traffic Control Station, the last remaining manned lighthouse in coastal Victoria. Further information at
