    Quickly Germany South Africa and France asked to join so the name of weekend was changed to The International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend It was at this time that John GM4OOU due to pressure of work had to cease his connections with the event The weekend became an annual event taking place over the third full weekend in August and has slowly grown in popularity in 1999 there were 204 lighthouse lightship stations in 36 countries and in 2007 380 stations took part Full statistics and guidelines for participation can be found at on the ILLW web site at http illw net The main reason the event has become so popular is because it is NOT a contest It is a relaxed fun weekend without the pressure of a contest The guidelines are simple and the onus is on the operators to act within the spirit of the weekend which is simply to expose amateur radio and the plight of lighthouses to the public This is why it is important for the ham station to be as close to the lighthouse lightship as possible and with the controlling body s approval A few years ago the International Association of Lighthouse Keepers decided to have an annual open day for lighthouses all around the world to encourage visitors to visit their lighthouses They decided that no better day could be decided upon other than the Sunday of the ILLW This move has been highly successful as the media have become involved in a number of the countries that take part in the event This year s event takes place on 16 17 August 2008 so if you haven t done so already find a lighthouse nearby and get a group together or do it solo and fire up a lighthouse station In
