Help I am in a Condo or a Hotel or I am a Tokyo Cliff Dweller

The great thing about antennas is that they are as simple as a fishing pole and some wire or a store bought antenna. Don’t let a balcony keep you off the air as its surprising how you can work DX with not being a big gun

When I was out in Vancouver , I rented a room at the Westin Bayshore Hotel because they have balconies and windows that open. Using a homebrew Buddipole and my FT-817, I easily made contacts into japan on 15 meters. The other great hotel that is dx friendly is the Westin Grand.

No reason you cant work dx from the hotel in Acapulco either.

Here are a lot of ideas
