TX5N Austral Islands DX-pedition

The TX5N project is on schedule, planned to be on the air April 16 – April 28, 2022. 
Several last minute topics were discussed during a March 15th team meeting, including entry formalities for French Polynesia, the government’s required Covid documentation and the operator scheduling.

Our equipment was delivered to Raivavae by cargo ship, and is now stored at the guest house from where we will operate. Included in the shipment are Elecraft K3 stations, one Flex PGXL amplifier and two Elecraft KPA-500 amplifiers. Several items will be hand carried to the island, including a Gemini DX-1200 amplifier and RadioSport headsets. Antennas are monoband VDAs for HF, one inverted-L for 160, two SteppIR BigIR w/80m vertical antennas and an NA4RR hexbeam for 10-20m.  The team will operate CW, SSB and Digital.  Band plan at: TX5N.net
As Internet is available the logs will be uploaded daily to M0URX.com  OQRS.
73,  Team TX5N
