Dx Summit Users: If you see my callsign listed as a spotter it is NOT me. Like many hundreds of other amateur radio operators my callsign was hijacked by somebody.  I am NOT a spotter on Dx Summit or any other service - user yes, spotter no.

INTERNATIONAL LIGHTHOUSE WEEKEND - AUGUST 19 & 20, 2017 - I plan to be QRV as N8GU/VY2 from the Cape Bear lighthouse (CA 0049) which is located on the south east tip of Prince Edward Island.  It is located next to a Marconi Museum - for additional information regarding the lighthouse and museum go to:   http://www.capebearlighthouse.com/

Operation will likely be 40m daytime; 80m night time; 20 meter anytime if band open.  Operation will be CW, SSB, and PSK 31.

Special QSL card depicting the lighthouse and station upon request: SASE envelope large enough for postcard sized QSL card. Donation of $1 US to cover printing cost appreciated. Please allow 6-8 weeks for processing.  As an alternative, you may copy the QSL picture from this website once it is available (around September 2017). Will also upload to e-QSL and LOTW.
