Signy island hosts a lighthouse listed on the Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society (ARLHS) this lighthouse seems to be not too far away the Signy Research Station site (WAP GBR-Ø9).
It is clearly documented that Signy island LH is very near the Base at 60° 42′ South, 43° 35′ West Gridsquare GC89. Signy Island LH is also referenced as ARLHS SOI-001, Admiralty Nr.G1375, NGA 110-20362.
But now, a problem comes up!
We have been trying to get a picture of this LH but in vain … loks like the Signy LH does not exist anymore!
In a recent message, about this matter, sent to Gabry IK1NEG, our great friend Mike Gloistein GMØHCQ wrote:
I am not aware of there ever being a lighthouse at Signy. I have written to the Station Leader at Signy and he has confirmed my thoughts, in that when the base was manned full time there was a scaffold frame with a lamp at the top but not really classed as a lighthouse. The Station Leader may have a picture of it, but it was taken down about four or five years ago.
If I do get a photo I will forward it on to you.
So, a kind of Lighthouse did exist at Signy island, as it has been referenced by several officials, but apparently, no one has been able to find out a close up picture of it.
Following the suggestion of Pedro Sarli, LU1JHF, to add a proper reference on WAP-WADA-LH Directory, we did it anyway.
WAP-LH-GBR-ØØ2 is the reference issued to it. New WAP reference will appear on WAP LH Directory on next up date (June 2020)
