British AR Lighthouse Society

British Amateur Radio Lighthouse SocietyThe British Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society (BARLS) was formed in 2002 by Steve Bryan G0SGB before being handed over to Mark Procter G1PIE in April 2013.

The society is for its members who are interested in Lighthouse/Lightships history around the UK and beyond.

The lighthouses can activated by anybody but only BARLS members can collect the awards in the scheme.

BARLS new team is Mark G1PIE, Pam 2E1HQY, Phil G0ABY, Bill M0BNN, and finally WAB awards manager Dave G4IAR.

We welcome all radio amateurs to join us from around the UK and beyond and SWL are very welcome.
