Report on BERU (Commonwealth) Contest 10-11 March 2012

I Took part in the BERU Contest and gave it stick when conditions allowed.
80m and 40 were just about a dead loss but 10m was good on Saturday after 12:00.
Very little propagation E-W and few VK's, Caribbeans and Malaysians logged.
The guys in the Meditterranean were much better off and some had over 1000 Q's at the end.
I managed 487.
As far as I know, no other ZS or V5 took part seriously.
