After return from Konya Istanbul back home.

Most days/ night the max DX was  2000km on 80m  exception was VK6ZT 80m  and A45SWL on 160  K1JT and some east coast copies on the K9AY ( in the not optimal direction)

Saturday lots of JA 28 RTTY  in the JARTS contest.  Had a short run but not much time for radio after being off home 1 1/2 week.
Found out to late I used the dipole while I was turning the beam... did not help much..  I was a bit out of the routine..
Saturday 100 Q in the JARTS  had to do other jobs around the house.
