On August 19 and 20, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum will join with hundreds of other lighthouses and lightships around the world to celebrate International Lighthouse-Lightship Weekend (ILLW).  Two local Amateur Radio operating groups will be on the air waves at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum during this special weekend.  Jupiter Lighthouse Radio Group (JLRG,) and the Martin County Amateur Radio Association (MCARA) will join forces to set up in Jupiter Lighthouse Park beginning at 9:00 AM on Saturday and continuing through 4:00 PM on Sunday. 

During each third full weekend of August, the AYR Amateur Radio Group (AARG), sponsors the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend. For this goodwill event, lighthouses around the world are activated by amateur radio operators to give them the proper historical recognition they deserve.  There are over 400 lighthouse entrants already registered for this year's event!

JLRG and the Martin County Amateur Radio Association (MCARA) invite you to visit the Jupiter Lighthouse at 500 Captain Armour's Way, Jupiter, FL 33469. We will have multiple operating stations and be making contacts all over the world with people trying to reach lighthouse operations. Whether you're a veteran Ham, newly licensed Technician, or hold no license at all, come out and discover a piece of Jupiter's rich history!
