QRP by the Bay, Saturday 14th November 2015

QRP by the Bay is a twice-yearly afternoon of QRP portable operating and eyeball QSOing at Victory Park on Chelsea Beach, Melbourne.  The location has been made famous in QRP circles as the beach locale for many of Peter VK3YE’s Aussie beach-themed videos.  The banner image on Peter’s YouTube channel  is of the Chelsea pier a few hundred meters further down the beach.  Peter has become a visible ambassador for minimal QRP, pedestrian mobile operating, wade-tennas and the gentleman’s art of making sophisticated amateur radios work with ridiculously few parts.  He founded and hosts Melbourne QRP by the Bay and it was with some expectation that I attended my first meet-up last Saturday.
