I couldn't find a station to do a serious guest-op from, so I
spent the weekend at an orienteering meet in Wise County instead.
I took my Elecraft K2 and KAT100 with me, and operated some from
the hotel using a 20' long random wire antenna. 15 meters worked a
lot better than 20 meters, and I couldn't get anyone on 40 meters
to hear me at all. I never heard a station on 20 meters. My best
DX was Hawaii, followed by the Galapagos Islands. Only two
stations answered my CQs. On Saturday night, conditions on 20
meters were awesome - I had solid copy on stations in Tomsk, Siberia
and Kazakhstan with my tiny wire, but of course they couldn't hear me.
