Our club, the QSY society will be activating lighthouse ILLW US0065 also listed as USA-276 by the ARLHS. Known as the Maid of the Hudson, the Esopus Meadows Light House is a historic lighthouse that dates back to 1871 located on the Hudson River in new York state.


I will be operating 20m psk31 from about 1400 utc to 2030 UTC.

We will have two other stations running SSB on 40m, 20, 10, and 6m depending on conditions.

There is a possibility of thunderstorms in the afternoon, so our end time will be dependent on the weather.
