Today's log was a 'luck of the draw' kind of log. I had to go out and leave my FDM-S2 recording by itself. This resulted in a lot of files. Obviously I hadn't planned to go through all them, so I used SDR Console's File Analyser to see which files contained DX. On checking a few it seemed to be mostly the same Polish stations coming through, and not too many of them at that, so I deleted the majority of files and left around 20 or so which looked like they were the most productive.

Whether you would call it luck that I managed to save a file which contained Turkish DX from Izmir, or whether you would call it bad luck that I didn't inspect the files more closely to see if there were more Turkish stations, well, you decide. Personally, I would call it luck that I accidentally hit on these as they were all first timers for me.
This was only a bonus since I was out at the time and, had I not been able to record the DX, etc. Other Turkish stations were also around at this time, all on listed Izmir frequencies, but I couldn't ID them in the few seconds they were available. Videos can be found on my YouTube channel here:
