Late last year, it was suggested at a Tipperary Amateur Radio Group club meeting that we should do something ‘different’ in 2017.
The suggestion was made to Activate a Lighthouse for the International Lighthouse and Lightship weekend. Given the lack of lighthouses in Tipperary, I made the suggestion that we use Ballinacourty Lighthouse. I had assisted EI2GN with an activation there years before and my recollection was that it was quite accessible.
Due to work commitments, I was late down to the site so kudos to EI3ENB, EI2HI, EI4KN and EI5JF for getting everything set up. I thoroughly enjoyed the operation before I had to head away again.
