The Light Vessel 55, to be on-air as GB0CCC, is the 500th registration in the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend.

More than 50 countries are joining the fun event this weekend.

LV55 once provided navigation for the treacherous Bristol Channel and was built in 1885.

No matter where you are in Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania or the Americas, there's plenty to work. The annual event helps promote awareness of old maritime navigation structures.

The new countries this year are Barbados and Kuwait. The USA is in the lead with an all-time high of 86 registrations, following are Australia and Germany on 65 each, with England having 35.

For a full list of registrations see the website illw.net.
