Amateur radio enthusiasts have been making waves around the world.
The Norfolk Amateur Radio Club (NARC) moved in to Happisburgh Lighthouse for International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend, which was set up with the aim of radio amateurs making contact with one another at lighthouse sites around the globe.
Members contacted other operators across Europe using a shortwave radio and morse code.
Happisburgh Lighthouse was also open to visitors on Sunday as part of this year's International Lighthouse Heritage Weekend, which aims to raise the profile of lighthouses, lightvessels and other navigational aids, promoting our maritime heritage.
NARC spokesman Steve Nichols said: 'It's good fun. It raises awareness of lighthouses and how they work. We've made contacts into Italy, Netherlands and Germany.'
