A five band contest, when two of the bands are virtually unusable, should be disappointing, however I quite enjoyed Beru this year - especially as I had three QSOs in the last hour, whereas last year I had none. 40m was in good shape and worked well with my 4-square. 20m was quite good but lacking in the Far East and Far West directions. 80m was good but the 80m opening to ZL at 6:30 on Sunday was a little disappointing. I enjoyed the added interest from the eight UK&CD HQ stations, working three of them on five bands and all of them on 80m and 40m. My setup had SO2R which meant I could run on one band whilst searching on another - which is effective in a contest that is all about finding QSOs at every possible opportunity. I was pleased to work many VKs and ZLs - something I always dreamed of doing when I was first licensed as a teenager.
