Lightship Læsø Rende on air

Ben DO1BEN - it's me, Peter DO7VD, Uli DD3EU and Uli DL7UB where active from the old historic Lightship Laesö Rende from June 22nd until 24th 2007.

Lightship Læsø Rende has the ARRL Ref.Nr.: FED-142

The historic lightship is located in the harbour of Heikendorf, a small town near Kiel.

Coordinates are; 54° 22.5' N; 010° 11.7' E
Gridsquare: JO54CI

We used the calls DR9L/p and DA9L/p.

TRX: Yaesi FT847, Heil Headset and Dipol Antennas for 10 to 80 meters.


The antennas were mounted on top of the masts of the lightship. Power: 100 Watts only.

We made a lot of interesting contacts. Sometimes we got a little pile up as we made the call as:
" cq cq cq this is DA9L, DA9L/p Lightship on the air ... "

During our activity we run a webcam. The visitors of our webpage could see the operator at work or pictures from other parts of the ship. On one of tis picts shows the whole crew.
