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.

The DX Code

It is no secret that the on-the-air behavior of hams, especially in pileups, has gotten worse in the last few years. Unpleasant, uncivil, impolite behavior of our fellow hams reduces the enjoyment of our hobby. It does not have to be that way nor should it be. Impolite behavior is counter-productive and simply inconsistent with the aim of our hobby, to have fun. Just as we work to improve our technical skills, we should all aspire to hold ourselves to the highest ethical operating standards. This Code is a reminder of the high ideals of which we are all capable. For more information. see http://dx-code.org/
