Note 1: Lighthouse does not conform to the Guidelines. Marked "n/a". 

Note 2: GB1BPL is a special event station run by the Llanelli Amateur Radio Society. Burry Port Lighthouse is a harbour light with a reflector, and is situated on the west breakwater of the outer harbour. It was built in 1842 and the light consists of a 24ft white painted, stone, circular tower with a black gallery and red lantern. This lighthouse now enables the harbour to accommodate up to 260 boats to be moored safely on floating berths at all states of the tide. Burry Port Harbour Lighthouse also makes up part of the much larger Millennium Coastal Park network in Wales.


Note 3: The light is a working aid to navigation on the Canadian List of Lights #227 and it is the tallest lighthouse in Atlantic Canada. The site is now a Provincial Historic Site of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. A permanent call sign has been issued for the lighthouse - VO2MPR. The lighthouse was the location used for the 2020, 2019 and 2006 CQ WW 160m DX Contest by a multi-operator team operating as VO2AC. You may find more information about the lighthouse at http://www.pointamourlighthouse.ca/home/
