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).

During the WLOTA Convention held in Brest (France) April 25 to 27, EG8FDA received the Best WLOTA Expedition 2007 trophy, as well as certificates for the QSL design and the difficulty to reach the lighthouse.

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