It was one of my last contests from Turkey and it was a nice
weekend again. What a propagations! The W6/7 signals were
not "classic West Coast signals" and sounded like all others
(without the typical "tremolo") and were often stronger than
East Coast. Lost 2 hours on Saturday mornig because of touthpain,
just when rates were arround 100... :-(

Run approx. 30% of the contest into a vertical (my beam is fixed
to EU) while been called by KH7R, E21EJC and some others  :-)
JA`s were most of the time stronger on the beam, what is very
unusual. Where the signals were coming from?

My goal was to beat me personal record from here (3M3), but
finally I was happy to break 3M border.

Thanks to everybody for points and see you in other contests...
