    History

    The name “Perseverance DX Group” originated during a planning session for The Mellish Reef 2014 DX-pedition. Several of the founders were together on a DX-pedition to New Zealand’s Campbell Island, a Sub-Antarctic outpost 700 kilometers south of New Zealand.
    Our boat was anchored in Perseverance Harbor during the expedition. It seemed appropriate to use the name of a harbor that requires one’s perseverance to withstand the wind, rain and wildlife. The harbor was named in 1810 after the ship (the sealing brig Perseverance). Its captain was Fredrick Hasselborough, the Perseverance was owned by Robert Campbell of Sydney, Australia, thus the name Campbell Island.
