Raivavae is one of the Austral Islands, which are part of French Polynesia but far enough away from the main group of islands to count separately for DXCC. The Australs and the Marquesas each became separate DXCC entities on 1 April 1998.  Amateur radio operations have taken place from a number of different islands over the years. For IOTA, Raivavae counts as OC-114 and is the only island counting for the reference (There are four other recognized IOTA groups in the Australs).
