Chris Colclough

Details

This was recently printed in the GMDX group's digest. And as I have seen this in other publications I thought they would not mind if we borrowed it, certainly as this is what we all here at SHDXCG follow and believe in.


DX CODE OF CONDUCT


1. I WILL LISTEN, AND 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 BE SURE OF THE DX STATION'S
CALL SIGN BEFORE CALLING.


4. I WILL NOT INTERFERE WITH THE DX STATION NOR ANYONE CALLING HIM AND WILL NEVER TUNE UP ON THE DX FREQUENCY OR IN THE QSX SLOT.


5. I WILL WAIT FOR THE DX STATION TO END A CONTACT BEFORE CALLING
HIM.


6. I WILL ALWAYS SEND MY FULL CALL SIGN - MOST IMPORTANT. PLEASE STICK TO THIS ONE!


7. I WILL CALL AND THEN LISTEN FOR A REASONABLE INTERVAL. I WILL NOT
CALL CONTINUOUSLY.


8. I WILL NOT TRANSMIT WHEN THE DX OPERATOR CALLS ANOTHER CALL
SIGN, NOT MINE.


9. I WILL NOT TRANSMIT WHEN THE DX OPERATOR QUERIES A CALL SIGN NOT
LIKE MINE.


10. I WILL NOT TRANSMIT WHEN THE DX STATION CALLS OTHER
GEOGRAPHIC AREAS THAN MINE.


11. WHEN THE DX OPERATOR CALLS ME, I WILL NOT REPEAT MY CALL SIGN
UNLESS I THINK HE HAS COPIED IT INCORRECTLY.


12. I WILL BE THANKFUL IF AND WHEN I DO MAKE A CONTACT.


13. I WILL RESPECT MY FELLOW HAMS AND CONDUCT MYSELF SO AS TO EARN
THEIR RESPECT.

If everyone who calls us follows these then we will make alot more contacts and we will work you alot quicker.


Please only use your FULL call when calling in.

Many thanks and see you in the pile up next week.
