Every year on the 3rd weekend in August (this year 17th and 18th-) the International Light House Day is celebrated world over by radio amateurs by transmitting special event stations from light houses to show their impotence. The Radio Society has taken part in this event for more than 20 years with stations in Beruwela Barbaryn Island, Dondra and Galle.
