DX CODE OF CONDUCT
I ENJOY WORKING PILE-UPs, BUT AS A HOBBY, I WANT TO ENJOY IT.
I WILL QRT IF STATIONS ARE NOT BEING RESPECTFUL.
HERE SOME SUGGESTIONS:
I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmitwhen the DX station calls other geographic areas than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
Please email me if you need any help or info for your upcomming DXpedtions to the Solomons, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
PS. if the transmission gets cut off. its because of the regular power outages here
73, good luck and look fwd to contacting you soon Ralph H44RK /H44IOTA, H44IND,5W0W
