"The 3D2C Conway Reef DXpedition"
by Paul Ewing, N6PSE

Conway Reef, discovered by Royal Navy Captain Drinkwater Bethune of HMS Conway in 1838, is a coral reef of atoll type about 280 miles southwest of the Fiji Islands.  The reef is uninhabited apart from a number of birds which appear to have almost no fear of humans.
