CTARC Receives ILLW Participation Certificate

Recently the Cape Town Amateur Radio Centre received a certificate from Kevin /VK2CE, the webmaster and coordinator of the International Lighthouse/Lightship Weekend, congratulating our club for twenty years of continuous participation in the event, from 1998 to 2017.

In fact, the CTARC was the first South African amateur radio club to take part in the event, way back in 1998 (you will note that the certificate refers to the former ZS1B / Bud Voortman, now SK. Bud was a moving spirit in the CTARC's involvement in the ILLW).

The CTARC will take part in ILLW again at Green Point Lighthouse, on the weekend of 19/20 August this year. It's a great event with the opportunity to show the flag for Amateur Radio and to work local and DX stations. Further information will be published here and announced on our bulletins closer to the time.
