This is it !  This is only my baggage for 5day stay in Trabzon, including WWCW contest operation.

Members of TRAC Trabzon, YM7KA, came to the club house to welcome me on Thursday evening.

Shack looks like this. IC756Pro is the main radio

Amp stored in separate storage.

Club house, with two towers and home brew monoband yagis.

Next to the club shack, there is a monument of European Youth Olympic held in Trabzon in 2011.

Overview of city center from the shack.


After the contest, Monday evening, the club member gathered again to serve me some local food.

Sardines are typical in Trabzon.

I usually imagine coffee in Turkey. In Trabzon tea is much more popular than coffee.

Özkan cooking sardines

Turkish drinks a lot. Did you know that ??
