Contact amateur stations duly authorized to operate from active or inactive lighthouses or lightships anywhere in the world on or after 25 Mar 1994. The possibility of electronic interference may prevent amateur radio transmissions directly from the premises, since they are very often used as transmission or relay points for many kind of communications.  For that reason, authorized operations from a location within the lighthouse premises or up to 300-400 yards away are valid for the award. SWL OK and need only send a list of stations heard. Direct contacts with minimum RS(T) 33(8) on any band or mode. Cross mode QSOís are OK.

QSLs must reflect QTH (photo QSL, official stamp on QSL or similar).  A list showing details of contacts should be certified by 2 officials of your radio club. If this is not possible, then the actual cards must be sent to sponsor together with sufficient IRCís for their return. OX, OY, OZ stations apply direct to OZ7DAL with QSLs and sufficient postage for their return.  SWL applications are accepted and SWLs need only send a list of stations heard.  Amateurs with VHF/UHF permission are encouraged to apply with a mix of SWL and QSLs. The sponsor reserves the right to call for the applicant to submit any or all of the cards listed on the application.  Award can be claimed only if the contacts are made/heard over a period of MORE than 7 days. 

QSLs for contacts with OZ7DAL made on any 25 March, will be a "JOKER" and count for any otherwise required contact.
