Turkey on 30m CW

I have just received the eQSL from Turkish station TA3AX (operator: Ahmet) from Canakkale for a QSO on 30m CW.
Çanakkale (pronounced [tʃɑˈnɑkːɑle]) is a town and seaport in Turkey, in Çanakkale Province, on the southern (Asian) coast of the Dardanelles (or Hellespont) at their narrowest point. The population of the town is 96 588 (2009 estimates.) [1]
Çanakkale Province, like Istanbul Province, has territory in both Europe and Asia. Ferries cross here to the northern (European) side of the strait.
The city is the nearest major town to the site of ancient Troy. The "wooden horse" from the 2004 movie Troy is exhibited on the seafront. Çanakkale is the second city to be situated on two continents after Istanbul. However Çanakkale is closer to mid-division than Istanbul.
Troy is a 2004 epic action film concerning the Trojan War. It is loosely based on Homer's Iliad. The Iliad (Ancient Greek: Ἰλιάς, Iliás, IPA: [iːliás]) is an epic poem in dactylic hexameters, traditionally attributed to Homer. Set in the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of Ilium by a coalition of Greek states, it tells of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege.
