    Maybe the date format they have in the request is reversed from your ADIF file?

    WOW, what an experience.

    We arrived Papeete late Tuesday after an uneventful (but long) 4 hour
    flight from Mangareva, French Polynesia.

    The team is in good spirits, we've been receiving hundreds of e-mails
    sent by the DX community, thank you for the positive comments.

    Of course, we were disappointed to leave Ducie early, but when you see
    the video of our island departure we think you'll agree it was the right
    decision. There is no harbor at Ducie, Braveheart used different landing
    and extraction points based on the winds, tide and the seas. Safety is
    always the primary concern, and while it was not raining, changing sea
    conditions presented the crew with challenges to remove the team and
    equipment without incident.

    Our log management team in Europe have all but one log that contains 523
    QSOs, we will send that file in the next day or so. Internet at our
    hotel is not robust enough to work the logs. Many of you have sent
    e-mail to our personal e-mail accounts and to the VP6D.com mailbox
    regarding busted calls and other log problems.. Those will be read and
    addressed beginning this weekend, it can not be done from Tahiti.

    We will spend the next 2 days relaxing and repacking our bags before the
    long flights home.

    Thanks for the the wonderful pileups, and thanks to the Braveheart crew
    that made this a safe and exciting DX-pedition for the team and the DX
    community.
