LoTW. If I can do it, anyone can do it. It's the best way to QSL!

I upload logs daily to LoTW. I also eQSL and direct mail, if desired (No SASE required).

  • 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.

How many of the above do you hear violated every day? Unfortunately, the answer is ALL. Help bring some civility, order and mutual respect back to the ham bands. If you were to add to this list above, what would you like to see? For me, I would add:

1) I will not scream into my microphone like a crazy man and will not adjust my audio effects to the point of distortion; in fact, I will admit that most audio "gear" is basically useless and adds no value.

2) I will not broaden my transmit BW beyond 2.8kHz just because I can.

3) I will not continually yell "up up up" on the receiving frequency of a DX station operating in split mode.

4) I will not tell every station that their signal report is "59."

I started listening to ham radio operators on 80 meters in the 1970's on an old multi-band Philips short wave receiver that my father bought in the early 1960s. At that point, I was hooked; it all started at age 7 as I tuned the dial on that old receiver as I fell asleep at night. 

Happily married for 31 years with three daughters and two grand kids.

Recently made the move to Elecraft gear and just (Nov. 2015) completed the build of a K3S and KAT500 tuner.
