A group of seven operators from the UK will operate from the island of Raivavae in the Australs (IOTA OC-114) from 20th March until 1st April, all bands CW, SSB and RTTY.The operators are Don G3BJ, Chris G3SVL, Nigel G3TXF, David G3WGN, Don G3XTT, Hilary G4JKS and Justin G4TSH.

They plan to run up to three stations, each consisting of a K3 plus amplifier. Antennas will consist of various vertical systems on the beach. The team will upload logs to Clublog and, bandwidth permitting, will also be uploading to LoTW as the expedition progresses. QSL will be handled by G3TXF and requests can be made directly or via the Clublog OQRS facility.

After the DXpedition most members of the team will be attending the International DX Convention at Visalia. A website will be launched with further details once the callsign and other details are confirmed. Don G3XTT,
