The Jupiter Lighthouse was activated for the 2008 International Lighthouse & Lightship weekend QSO party by members of the LARA club.

We attached one end of a G5RV antenna to the Lighthouse (about 100ft up) and secured the other end at a point about 50 ft above sea level. In addition a "GAP" all band vertical was set up in the clearing adjacent to our operating positions.  We had two canopy tents to cover our  gear and shelter our Ham Radio information table.  Plus we had the protection of a century old Bayan Tree.

Results:
      Total QSO's - 316
      Countries     -  19

The cooperation of the US Coast Guard was much appreciated - Thanks Bosun
