Welcome to the KnightLites Cape Lookout Page !
We like to get together to operate our flea-powered radios at unique sites. Here are some pictures of an expedition to Cape Lookout, North Carolina, which took place in November, 1994. The operators included Joe KD4LLV, Dave N2MLU, Rob WA3ULH, Howard KE4RUZ, and Paul AA4XX. The gang operated 20M (QRP +) and 40M (OHR QRP Classic), with "Walking Stick" verticals for both bands. Cape Lookout is accessable by ferry from Harker's Island. We camped in a grove of pine trees, about 1/4 mile from the beach.
First we see the 20M Walking Stick Vertical and campsite at Cape Lookout.
