    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.

 New Zealand Sub Antarctic Islands DXpedition
(OC-037)

The Perseverance DX Group (PDXG) has some unfinished business. Several PDXG members participated on the 2012 ZL9 activation that was cut short by weather.

After their successful VP8PJ South Orkney Islands 2020 DXpedition, PDXG is pleased to announce their intention to activate the New Zealand Sub Antarctic Islands (ZL9), Clublog #24 most wanted, in the 2021-2022 timeframe.

The plan includes 160-10m operation, CW/SSB/RTTY/FT8, with emphasis on 160, 80, 60, 40 and, propagation dependent, 12 and 10 meters.  

The landing permit process is pending and discussions with transportation partners have begun. However, the Covid-19 lock down has caused significant delays and uncertainty.

Additional information will be published as it develops.
