Poor operating is taking all the fun out of DXing. The best DX operators always follow the DX Code of Conduct. Let's all work together to improve our operating.
DX CODE OF CONDUCT
1.I will listen, listen and then listen some more
2.I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly
3.I will not trust the cluster and will make sure I have copied the DX callsign
4.I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling him and will never tune up on the DX stations frequency or in the QSX slot.
5.I will wait for the DX station to complete a QSO before calling him
6.I will always send my full callsign
7.I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will never call continuously. I
8.I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another callsign not mine.
9.I will not transmit when the DX operator questions a callsign not like mine.
10. I will not transmit when the DX operator calls a geographic area not where I am.
11.When the DX calls me I will not repeat my callsign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
12.I will be thankful when I make a contact with the DX
13. I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
