ETHICS AND OPERATING PROCEDURES FOR THE RADIO AMATEUR

                             The Radio Amateur's Code

The Radio Amateur is
CONSIDERATE... He never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the
pleasure of others.
LOYAL... He offers loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local
clubs, the IARU Radio Society in his country, through which Amateur Radio in his
country is represented nationally and internationally.
PROGRESSIVE... He keeps his station up to date. It is well-built and efficient. His
operating practice is above reproach.
FRIENDLY... He operates slowly and patiently when requested; offers friendly
advice and counsel to the beginner; kind assistance, cooperation and consideration
for the interests of others. These are the marks of the amateur spirit.
BALANCED... Radio is a hobby, never interfering with duties owed to family, job,
school or community.
PATRIOTIC... His station and skills are always ready for service to country and
community.

                 -- adapted from the original Amateur's Code, written by    Paul M. Segal, W9EEA, in 1928.
