Operators Dave K3EL and Don VE7DS will be active as TX5RV Raivavae Island (OC-114) between October 30th and November 6th.
Activity will be on 80-10 meters using mostly CW, maybe some SSB and
The Austral Islands are currently 44th on the ClubLog "most wanted"
list, very high for a fly-in destination, with a particularly low percentage of ClubLog users having contacts on 10 or 12 meters.
Suggested frequencies are:
CW - 3531, 7031, 10119, 14031, 18081, 21031, 24914 and 28031 kHz
SSB - 7065/7165, 14220, 18115, 21315, 24970 and 28475 kHz
RTTY - 7037, 10144, 14082, 18102, 21090, 24927 and 28090 kHz
This is not intended to be a full-on DXpedition (they are travelling with their XYLs, hence they’ll be spending some time away from the radios), but there will be significant on-the-air time for approximately one week, running two medium-power stations with vertical antennas on the beach.
QSL via M0URX (OQRS preferred). Logs will be uploaded to LoTW quickly
after their return. The OQRS will be available for direct and bureau card requests, and direct requests can also be sent by snail-mail.
Full information on QSLing via M0URX is available at Tim's Web site at:
