The Metro Amateur Radio Club participated in the annual International Lighthouse / Lightship Weekend (ILLW) held on August 16th2014.
Our location at the Grosse Point Lighthouse in Evanston was fantastic. We set up our club radio and vertical antenna on the shores of Lake Michigan.

If you look close, you can see the green canopy in the lower left hand corner. This photo shows our close proximity to the lighthouse.

We made over 50 contacts, including 8 lighthouses, in the US and Canada. Our furthest contact was OK2RZ in Czech Republic.
