Welcome to our website devoted to Ham Radio and Lighthouses.

There is a strong following of lighthouse enthusiasts around the world and amateur radio makes for an interesting connection.

Purpose of activities:

i. This event is not a contest, there are no prizes or any other enticements to participate and is therefore free of charge.

ii. To promote public awareness of ham radio and lighthouses in Malaysia.

iii. To acknowledge the contribution and recognition of the lighthouses and their keepers.

iv. To foster fellowship among members of the various Ham Radio clubs and Lighthouse Societies in Malaysia.

v. To gain experience for DX-peditions for the Ham Radio operators and to promote “exotic” Malaysia among International DXCC chasers or seekers.

vi. Pilot project proposed, as a future yearly event on the 2nd weekend of August and to be inserted in the Tourism Malaysia Calendar of the year.
vii. Since the 2nd weekend of August every year, coincides with the “Asia Pacific JOTA”, this ILLW event is extended to all Boy Scouts and Girl Guides via BP House Malaysia, to join in the fun at the light houses or contact the light houses via Ham Radio.

ILLW 2010 (MY0002)

We had a great weekend with my good friends starting 1st time ILLW event at Cape Rachado Lighthouse year 2008 and now 2010 in Tg Gelang Lighthouse MY0002. We arrived at Tg Gelang Lighthouse at 01.00 am, Saturday early morning. The antenna is still up , so not much of a problem fixing the station and going on air. About 5.00 am take a break for 'sahur'.
We manage to setup the station with 2 station operating on 20m band with antenna Buddy stick, 2 el monoband & spider beam for the 40m bandthe antenna is dipole & G5RV only.
The keeper of the lighthouse from Jabatan Laut wass very impressed by the thing we did and the contacts we made especially he saw the couple of QSL cards for the ILLW on the last year.

In sumarry, we manage to log 57 contact on 20m band, 8 contact on 10m band & 27 contact on 40m band. So in total we manage to log 92 stations in this ILLW 2010.

Many thanks especially all best friends are staying together like 9W2GUU, 9W2KRZ, 9M2SQL, 9W2TTK, 9M2RZL & 9W2WF. Special thanks to Jabatan Laut, TLDM Tg Gelang & PERAMAH friens like 9W2WWW, 9W2JDY and all hams friend from Kuantan for the sapporting this activity.
