Activating India’s Lighthouses: AT8LH

Amateur Radio operation from ARLHS IND-011 during the ARLHS and ILLW Organization-sponsored weekend from 15th Aug to 24th Aug 2008 was made possible using the unique callsign AT8LH by very special permission from the Government of India — Archaeological Survey of India, vide F. No.17/33/2008-M. This activation was later designated “ILLWeek” when the time period for the operation was extended several days beyond the traditional weekend. An account of the activation, with photos of the ham crew and the lights, appears later in this special ILLW Winter 2008 issue of the ARLHS Lighthouse Lens newsletter.
