The International Lighthouse / Lightship Weekend will be on the weekend 
of August 18th & 19th, 2018 from
00.01UTC 18 August to 2400UTC 19 August 2018 (48 hours).

The Morgan City ARC BEARS (Bayou Emergency Amateur Radio Service) will 
be operating from the Southwest
Reef Lighthouse (USØ176) Park using the call W5BMC.  We will operate 40 
& 20 meters and EchoLink W5BMC-R.
Hours will be Saturday 1700Z to 2200Z and 1700Z to 1900Z Sunday but not 
set in stone.

For some reason or other August seems to have become the international 
weekend for lighthouses. Countries all over the
world have become involved in one form or another of lighthouse 
activity. Some years ago, the United States Congress
declared August 7th as their National Lighthouse Day and during that 
first week in August amateur radio operators in
America set up portable stations at lighthouses and endeavor to contact 
each other. This event is known as
the US National Lighthouse / Lightship Week.  The Southwest Reef 
Lighthouse has been given the designation number
USØ176.
