Don, VE7DS and Dave, K3EL undertook a mini-dxpedition to Raivavae, (FO/A, Austral Islands, IOTA OC-114) from 30 October to 6 November 2013. The Austral Islands were at that time 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. Callsign was be TX5RV.
This was not intended to be a full-on dxpedition (we were travelling with our XYLs, hence spent some time away from the radios), but there was significant on-the-air time for approximately one week, running two medium-power stations with vertical antennas on the beach.
