SOAPBOX:The contest started very well, with good propagation to ZL and VK on 40 and 80 metres. I was able to work several UK stations on all-daylight paths on 40m. Absorption was very low, but so was F-layer ionisation. As the contest wore on, conditions declined. I watched the Solar Flux stay still at 68, and the A and K indices slowly rose. The last hours are always long, but these were especially so. At least there was no disturbance. Thank you RSGB for sponsoring BERU, my favourite contest.
