May 31. 2003 - Rock solid in southeast | Please send your comments/reports/log-sheets/audios to DK5YA

Early in the morning MUF was rising very fast above Aegean Sea and the northwest coast of Turkey. At 07.20 HA was reporting BC from OD5 and 4X4 and at 07.50 144 opened from 4X4 to LZ, YO, HA. OD5/OK1MU was on the road south of Beirut, stopped his car and went back fast. Good idea cause 144 was still open when he arrived in his shack at 09:50 UT. Later he was working into YU and T94 while 4X4 was into 9A, HA, YO, YU and LZ. Band closed at 10:26 UT.
Involved DXCC: 4X4, OD5, LZ, YO, 9A, YU
