About the World List of Lights

There are literally thousands of lighthouses, lightships, and navigational beacons around the world. In an effort to be able to readily identify these lights for amateur radio contact purposes, we created the Official ARLHS World List of Lights. The ARLHS WLOL contains information on 15,490 Lighthouses in 233 amateur radio call areas.

The WLOL is a utility for amateur radio operations, but we encourage all lighthouse and lightship aficionados to use, enjoy and help improve the data within this directory.

The last update to the WLOL occurred September 17th, 2020. We constantly update and add to the list as more data becomes available. You can help. If you have coordinates for a light, propose them on the light's WLOL web page. If you see a correction or an addition needs to be made, please send an e-mail with the information to the Lighthouse List manager.

This database provides not only the light list, but also lists the IOTA number (if on an island) and the Grid Square.

These are lists of the world's lights, and to each we have assigned an ARLHS Number. Use this list to determine if a particular light is recognized for the various ARLHS awards, and check to see if your favorite light is listed.
