To be valid for the award, a Navigational Aid must be named in the Admiralty List of Lights and be a land-based, fixed lighthouse or harbour light.
Lightships will be acceptable ONLY if tied up in harbour or in dry dock. Lights that are now Historic or are now non operational that are on the claim form may also be claimed &
subject to the Award Managers approval.
We require that the station must be at or adjacent to the light. Adjacent means next to, or as close as possible on the land adjoining the boundaries of the light.
The W.A.B. Square activated shall be that in which the station is established. Subject to paragraph (2) above, this may not be the same square as the light.
The start date shall be 1st January 2004.
Claims should be submitted to the Awards Manager in country order and alphabetical order by the name of the Aid. They should include date of the contact, W.A.B. Square and station worked. Details should be included of band and mode for any endorsement that is required.
Certificates will be issued for each 25 worked/heard on HF and each 10 on VHF/UHF. The normal certificate price applies. For subsequent claims, previous claims must be included.
