S.C. de Tenerife
First activation of the Anaga Lighthouse. It was built on 1863 and is currently operative. It is on one of the most abrupt and out of the way locations in Tenerife Island, on top of the Roque Bermejo, at 235 metres of altitude. Accessing the lighthouse may be by land through several kilometres of mountain footpath, o by the sea.
This operation is possible thanks to the valuable co-operation of the Ports Authority and Telecom Authority in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, as well the Unión de Radioaficionados de Tenerife (Tenerife Amateur Radio Union).

We want to thank all the friends who contacted with us, without their support this expedition would not be possible.
