map of Norway showing "my" three radio stations Kvitsoy, Vigra and Ingoy.
Ingøy is located at 71°06'N, 23°50'E. It is almost as far north as North Cape, which is 65 km to the east of Ingøy.
The closest big town is Hammerfest, an architectonically modern habour town. It is a shame for us Germans, that the town is modern because the German army (Wehrmacht) applied the tactic of "burnt soil" before its retreat.
Ingøy was an important trading port in the 16th century and is home to the world's northernmost manned lighthouse, Fruholmen Fyr. This is also an important meteorological station. It holds the Norwegian record with 257 days in a year with gale force winds or stronger.
With the end of commercial whaling,- remaining left buildings can be still visited -, Ingoy lost most of its importance.
