QRP By the Harbour November 2018

Yesterday we held another QRP By the Harbour meetup in Sydney at McIlwaine Park, Rhodes. A small friendly group turned up and happily the weather was kind. (Yesterday was 36C and a previous event was hailed out).

I set up a simple end fed antenna with a counterpoise. The end was held up on a 6m squid pole tied to a steel garden stake. I had a contact on 40m. Peter, VK2EMU, hung a giant dipole out to two trees and operated on 80m.


The most interesting station was Colin, VK2JCC, who put up a magnificent squid pole supported vertical. The rig was a wonderful military radio called a Clansman PRC320 that seemed to work very well.
