VK5CWL commenced operations from Kangaroo island (IOTA OC-139) this morning as part of the International Lighthouse & Lightship weekend (ILLW).
The main activation isCape Willoughby lighthouse on Kangaroo Island, but the IOTA is also in high demand by IOTA chasers too (including me!).
The call sign was issued in 2013, and this year’s ILLW event ( 2013) will be the first time that this call has been utilised.
VK5CWL will be on air from Friday 16th August 2013 – Monday 19th August, 2013 inclusive and you can read more about their event at http://vk5cwl.weebly.com/index.html
