The basic objective of the event is to promote public awareness of lighthouses and lightships and their need for preservation and restoration,
and at the same time to promote amateur radio and to foster International goodwill.
Lighthouses are fast becoming an endagered species with the introduction of Global Positioning Systems and Satellite
Navigation and the automation of the light source to solar power which has resulted in the withdrawal of mangement personnel (Keepers).
