On the evening before departing CA for FL, I was on 4th floor of hotel near LAX with my Buddistick out the window. The radial was inside the room. I worked WA, IL, NM x 2, and NY on 20 meters CW. On 20 meters PSK I worked Culver City, CA nearby. The rig was KX3 with Ham Central Terminal. This exceeded my expectations for hotel ops and sure was fun.
