[VK3 Event] Bring your Bitx/uBitx - Melbourne QRP by the Bay 28 July

Peter Parker

Every few months we have a QRP and homebrew gathering at Chelsea beach near Melbourne. 

The next is this Saturday, July 28, 3pm near the lifesaving club. 

This time we're having a "Bring your Bitx (or uBitx)" theme.  

So if you have a Bitx/uBitx or are curious about them it could be worth coming along if you're in the area.

Hi Peter and all,

I hope somebody videos it for the rest of the world. I would love to see what everybody did with their uBitx/Bitx. I will be receiving my second uBitx Thursday to go along with my Bitx60 and my Bitx40 using the ozqrp VFO.

Got all excited.  Just finished my first uBitx and told the XYL we were heading for Melbourne this weekend.  Then I realized it wasn't Melbourne Florida!  A bit far

What time UTC will you be on the air? It would be cool to connect with a Bitx "down under".
