The superconducting linac for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will accelerate ions to 200 MeV per nucleon, with the possibility of a future energy upgrade to 400 MeV per nucleon via additional cavities. A 5-cell superconducting β = 0.65 elliptical cavity was designed for this purpose. Two unjacketed 5-cell niobium cavities were fabricated; the first of these was Dewar tested in February 2019. The surface preparation was bulk electropolishing (EP, 150 µm), hydrogen degassing (600°C, 10 hours), light EP (20 µm), clean-room high-pressure water rinsing, and in-situ baking (120°C, 48 hours). We achieved Q0 = 2·1010, equivalent to Rs = 10 nΩ, at the design gradient of 17.5 MV/m. The cavity was tested in a newly refurbished FRIB test Dewar, equipped with a variable input coupler.
