SOUTH PORTLAND — Amateur radio operators will celebrate International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend Aug. 18 and 19 by attempting to establish two-way communications with other lighthouses and lightships around the world from the Spring Point Ledge Light.

The event to promote the preservation of lighthouses and lightships will be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day, sponsored by the Wireless Society of Southern Maine, in cooperation with the Spring Point Ledge Light Trust, which owns and preserves the lighthouse.
