The Nordic team of OH0RJ, OH2BH, OH2PM, SM0W and SM6U will try landing on Market Reef Saturday, August 11, around 1600 UTC with two stations and may appear on the air on that night as OJ0B. They will do CW and SSB until Thursday, August 16. QSL via OH2BH.

On August 16, OH2HAN, OH2MZB and OH2LU will be swapping the operating duties, weather permitting, and will air OJ0MI focusing on RTTY but also the weekend's (August 18/19) lighthouse activity. QSL via OH2HAN.

CW at .025 kHz and on SSB 3790, 7040, 14190, 18140, 21290 kHz. Over the lighthouse weekend 14250-14260 kHz will be used.

They will run the latest FT2000 radios and SteppIR antennas.

The Finnish Lighthouse Society has been active repairing the lighthouse for this summer and you may wish to follow their activities which include daily reporting and interesting general details.


If you are a stamp collector or wish to receive your QSL card with unique Market Reef stamps you may send SASE with 7 Euros (10 USD) as your donation to the Finnish Lighthouse Society through respective QSL managers.

If you wish to tour the Reef in the spirit of adventure, you may follow in the footsteps of the 2005 OJ0B activity:
