International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend
August 20-21, 2016
Newburyport Harbor Light / Plum Island
The Newburyport Electronics and Radio Society (K1YRD) is pleased to continue its participation in the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend to promote awareness of the role of lighthouses, radio, and the long maritime history of Newburyport.
The Newburyport Harbor Light is located at the northern end of Plum Island and is maintained by the Friends of Plum Island Light, Inc., who have graciously provided us the opportunity to participate in this historic event.
Donations to support the maintenance of the Newburyport Harbor Light may be sent to the Friends of Plum Island Light, Inc. a non-profit organization, at P.O. Box 381, Newburyport, MA 01950. Phone: 978-973-6935. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
K1RID, KC1AYV, KC1BDD, KC1CMF and guests 'activated' the harbor light during the event on Saturday 8/20, and Sunday 8/21. The team made almost 400 contacts in the two day event! Thank you to everyone for participating.
More information about our club, including photographs from the event, may be found at www.k1yrd.org. QSL cards will be handled direct via our club (K1YRD) at 9 South Pond St., Newburyport, MA 01950. We are using a larger postcard format, so there is no need to send a SASE if you send us a QSL card first (thank you if you did - we will return it to you if our QSL card to you has not already been mailed).
As of September 10, 2016, all QSL cards have been mailed. Please let us know via the contact page on our club website if yours did not arrive. Thank you again for participating in this great event!
