Raivavae – Austral Islands

Don, VE7DS and Dave, K3EL are planning a mini-dxpedition to Raivavae, (FO/A, Austral Islands, IOTA OC-114) in early November 2013. The Austral Islands are currently 44th on the Club Log “most wanted” list, very high for a fly-in destination, with a particularly low percentage of Club Log users having contacts on 10 or 12 m.

This is not intended to be a full-on dxpedition, but significant time will be spent on the air for approximately one week, running medium-power stations with vertical antennas on the beach. More info will be added on this site (see links to the right) in the coming weeks.
