Portable operation in South Padre Island Condo

Setup the FT-817ND on the balcony of a 3rd floor condo on South Padre Island. Used an end feed antenna with a 33 foot wire stretched across the balcony rail and then dropped down along the side of the condo. Antenna tuned up well on all bands 80m-10m. Was able to receive quite a few stations but I did not work any of them. Will try again during the week and see if I have any better luck.
