Those intrepid hams in the Atlanta area lead by Ricky K4JTT are at it again with the third annual activation of a lighthouse that rarely sees much ham radio activity.
This year the team of eight hams will take their equipment, food, and all supplies to operate from Sand Island Lighthouse [Inactive since 1933] (ARLHS USA-723, TWLHD WLH K-141, WW Loc. EM50XE), Dauphin Island (NA-213, USi AL002S), Mobile county, Alabama, on 25-30th September 2012.
A special call, K4D, has been assigned by the FCC for this activation.
The team will be QRV on all HF bands and modes.
QSL via the Kennehoochee Amateur Radio Club, W4BTI (
