This Saturday, July 11th, the Ashland, WI, Historical Society, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, and the City of Ashland are sponsoring a Centennial Celebration of the Ashland Harbor Breakwater Light, ARLHS #USA-019. The event will also celebrate the transfer of ownership of the light from the Coast Guard to the National Park Service. The Ashland Light is the 9th light station in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

KD9FM and N9XIM will be operating a centennial special event station using the call sign W9L. The operation will be on both 40 and 20 meters, as near to 7.270 and 14.270 as possible, throughout the day. Set up around 1330Z and on the air begins shortly after that. Further information about the event is posted on my home page on QRZ.com

I am offering a QSL card for an SASE, or a certificate which includes 11 photos of the Ashland Light, past and present, and a photo of the original light keepers house which is now under private ownership. For the certificate, send $2. We will provide the envelope and postage. Send your request for the card or certificate to home address of N9XIM on QRZ.com
