See DX code of conduct below. Formerly: KA8SIO(1983-2002), W8JMF(2002-2012). HF=Collins.
I've added ClubLog search boxes at the bottom and enabled OQRS for KT8D if you need a buro card.
Good in both Century Club bureaus, the Geratol bureau, the OMiss bureau and the HHH bureau. DX cards via the IARU bureau are highly encouraged, but all direct DX QSLs will be returned direct. No SASEs, IRCs or postage required for domestic or DX QSLs. I like to send post cards to US addresses, so if you don't like those, an SAE is encouraged, but in most cases your card will already be gone, unless it is a contact somewhere that QSLing is not the standard thing, like a short casual contact from a place I've likely confirmed. I haven't signed up for eQSL on my new call and have no plans to currently. As of 27 April, 2009 W8JMF had rejected 540 Eqsls and then started largely ignoring them. Because I'm a paper logger it's not practical for me to get everything up to the LotW. I've uploaded the Cabrillo logs I've put together from contesting and now try to put up all QSOs with known LotW users. If you need a LotW confirmation from me that I may have missed sending up, let me know.
I am a supporter of the DX Code of Conduct:
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 DX 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 transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other 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.
