about Code of conduct and ethics:
From I.T.U. Definition1.56 Amateur service :-A radiocommunication service for the purpose of self-training, intercommunication and technical investigations carried out by amateurs, that is, by duly authorized persons interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest.
There is no need of Codes of conduct: - bully, selfish, ignorant do not read or understand it.
Read your license conditions, ask to understand it and obey it. A Latin proverb says: QUI ROGAT NON ERRAT (One who asks does not err, and this also on the air).
The hobby means different thing to different peoples. Everybody makes mistakes, and it is never completely known what there is on the others side. For many invalids and disabled, it may be the only activity, giving them few happy minutes, or relief from long suffering, exercise restraint.
Contests, seeking QSL cards and awards, Special events stations, Expeditions stations, or any special activity on the bands, are not a by-law of any entity or the I.T.U., and has no priority over any other simple basic contacts. With respect to these, not all amateurs are using, or has available, a PC connected to the internet information, at any given moment. It will be a good, on the air, conduct, to supply basic information, at short intervals.
