I was told the windows in my 19th floor hotel room did not open so I did not bring a wire antenna. Lesson learned here is never believe what other people tell you and always have a backup plan.
To a hammer everything looks like a nail. To a ham anything that has metal in it looks like an antenna. I repurposed a 25 foot extension cord into an antenna. I stripped off the outside insulation and pulled out all three wires. I connected the two of the three wires together into a 41 foot radiator and connected it to the center conductor of a BNC adapter. I strung the 41 foot radiator out the window. I then took the green wire, cut it down to about 16 feet and connected it to the shield of the BNC adapter as a counterpoise. What I have now is an instant random wire that is tunable with the KX3 ATU from 40m to 10m. It is actually near resonant on 20 and 40m. I used the door as measuring stick. I used the door handles for leverage in stripping off the thick insulation. I used the band aids from my first aid kit as electrical tape to keep the wire joint together after splicing.
I then managed to work several Russians and one Slovenian.
