**** Post event report : Ten members working two HF rigs (40 meters and 20 meters ) logged 191 QSO's.  We actually made contact with 19 other lighthouses within the United States and Canada. I think everyone that attended was in agreement the we had a beautiful and fun-filled day at one of America's most historic lighthouses. ****
