QTH: BANGOR, Morbihan, Brittany, France - IOTA: EU-048 Morbihan region group - Loc.: IN87jh
My QTH is Bangor, a small commune (abt. 930 inh.) in the Morbihan département in Brittany in northwestern France. It is one of the four communes on the island of Belle-Île-en-Mer.
Situated in Bangor, Le Grand Phare (i.e. The main lightouse) is one of the finest lighthouses on the coast of France. It was built in 1935. Its granite base rises to 47 m (154 ft) and the total height is some 84 m (276 ft) above the sea. The light is emitted every 3 seconds and every 7 seconds and can be seen up to 28 miles out to sea.
Belle-Île-en-Mer (in English, the name means Beautiful Island in the Sea) is off the coast of Brittany in the département of Morbihan, and the largest of Brittany's islands.
The island measures 17 km (10.5 miles) by 9 km (5.6 miles) and has an average altitude of 40 m (131 ft). The area is about 84 km2. The coasts are a mixture between dangerously sharp cliff edges on the southwest side, the Côte Sauvage (Wild coast), and placid beaches, the largest being les Grands Sables (The great sands) and navigable harbours on the northeast side. The island's climate is oceanic, having less rain and milder winters than on the mainland.
As of 2009 census, Belle Île population was 4,920. However, in summer the population may increase to 25,000, with a peak af 35,000 between 15 July-15 August due to touristic activity (according to Wikipedia).
