If you're into QRP, homebrewing and HF antennas don't miss Melbourne's QRP by the Bay.
Enthusiastic amateurs will gather on Chelsea beach and show of projects, demonstrate antennas and swap experiences.
If you've just got your ham ticket and haven't done much HF, it's a great opportunity to see how it's done with 5 or 10 watts. It's easier than you
VK3YE Peter Parker told WIA National News that the venue will be Chelsea Beach, near Victory Park and the Chelsea Longbeach Surf Lifesaving Club.
The date: Saturday February 14 from 3pm. That's Saturday February 14, any time from 3pm.
QRP by the Bay is an informal gathering. Bring any radio related projects, equipment, antenna or accessories. Stay as short or long as you like.
The venue is family friendly with numerous parks and food outlets nearby.
While it’s Valentine’s day there’s plenty in and around Chelsea to combine a visit with a meal or sunset walk on the beach.
This will be the fourth Melbourne QRP by the Bay. Last November’s produced a record crowd with nearly 30 present.
