The anniversary ILLW grabs imagination
  The 15th annual International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend in August has inspired many to register early with 32 countries and nearly 250 registered already.
  Although this is just over half of the countries normally attracted by the event it is slightly ahead of expectations with ten weeks to go.
  The weekend increases the public awareness of lighthouses and lightships and their need for them to be preserved, promotes amateur radio and fosters international goodwill.
  The event was started mainly by late Mike Dalrymple GM4SUC and the Ayr Amateur Radio Group in 1995 as the Northern Lighthouse Activity Weekend with stations at Scottish lighthouses. It quickly went international.
  The third weekend in August coincides with the worldwide lighthouse open day organised by the Association of Lighthouse Keepers that sees public access to many of the featured lighthouses.
  During the weekend a group or individual sets up an amateur station at or adjacent to a lighthouse, lightship or marine beacon that is listed.
  To register, complete a short online form, read the event rules and have lots of fun. We have complete statistics on past events, reports from previous years and we're on Facebook too.
  Visit the website at for the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend held on August the 18th and 19th.

  It has been a long time since a significant award has been offered to DXers and it requires submitting only 16 QSL cards with a user-friendly application. WUST is an acronym for Worked United States Territories, sponsored by the Metro DX Club located in suburban Chicago. Some of these 16 WUST territories can be heard regularly but many appear on the list of the 25 most wanted countries and can only be worked during a DXpedition to that location. Don't let this scare you away however, because you can qualify for the basic award by confirming only 14 of the 16 territories. Your remaining two can be confirmed later and endorsements are available that will signify that you have reached the ultimate goal.
  Awesome wallpaper, challenging and requires minimal paper work.
  The 16 WUST territories effective January 1, 2012 are: KG4 (Guantanamo Bay), KHØ (Mariana Islands), KH1 (Baker & Howland Islands), KH2 (Guam), KH3 (Johnston Island), KH4 (Midway Island), KH5 (Palmyra & Jarvis Islands), KH5K (Kingman Reef), KH7K (Kure Island), KH8 (American Samoa), KH8S (Swains Island), KH9 (Wake Island), KP1 (Navassa Island), KP2 (US Virgin Islands), KP4 (Puerto Rico) and KP5 (Desecheo Island).
  Confirmations can be on mixed bands and modes and there are no date restrictions. No, it’s not as easy as you may have thought, but remember, this is a DX award. It’s not a simple certificate acknowledging contact with a special event station or commemorating an occasion. You can proudly display this distinctive certificate in your ham shack and show it to fellow hams acknowledging your efforts in the world of DX. Remember, only 14 QSL cards get you started on the road to WUST and not 340 that are required to make number 1 on the ARRL DXCC Honor Roll. If you don’t want to take the chance of mailing 16 valuable QSL cards, photocopies of confirmations will be accepted. In addition, Logbook of the World confirmations are OK and must be verified by two licensed amateur radio operators. Plus, if you are NUMBER ONE on the ARRL DXCC Honor Roll and your station call appears on the list dated August 2010 (or later) you'll not be required to send any confirmations for the WUST award.  Simply file an application along with 8 US dollars or 4 valid IRCs.  Mail your submission to the Metro DX Club, 3810 N. Chamlin Drive, Morris, IL 60450. Following the receipt of the original award for a minimum of 14 territories, endorsements for contact 15 and 16 are available for 3 US dollars or 2 valid IRCs. For additional information, go online to E-mail questions should be sent to
  The new sunspot cycle is finally upon us and the bands are wide open. So what are you waiting for?  If DXing is your call then WUST must be on the wall!  WUST is a MUST!

Secretary/Treasurer, Metro DX Club

73 and Good DX!
