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.
