International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend (ILLW) 2014

This is my brief log of two-way contacts with lighthouses and lightships during the 2014 ILLW:
 
CALLSIGN  kHz   MD  ILLW No DATE       UTC
LA1J      10107 CW  NO-0004 2014-08-15 17:45 

DM2C      10116 CW  DE-0021 2014-08-15 20:51 
CT7/ON7RU 10109 CW  PT-0025 2014-08-15 21:13 
S51LGT    10114 CW  SI-0001 2014-08-16 05:46 
8S7GL     18140 SSB SE-0004 2014-08-16 08:37 
SZ5RDS/P  18151 SSB GR-0003 2014-08-16 09:21
SZ5RDS/P  10106 CW  GR-0003 2014-08-17 22:00
DF0WLG    10116 CW  DE-0009 2014-08-16 16:27 

OG5A      18135 SSB FI-0003 2014-08-17 09:35 
LY2FN/P   10109 CW  LT-0001 2014-08-17 20:55
 

The best catches were: 
  • OG5A/FI-0003 Lightship SS Helsinki
  • SZ5RDS/P/GR-0003, the inaccessible lighthouse on an islet near Kastellorizo. 
I hoped for a contact with SZ5RDS/P on 50 and/or 144 MHz for locator square KM46, but VHF propagation conditions were poor.
