DX Code of Conduct

For some reason the website DX-code.org is not available.  I feel it is important to keep the DX Code of Conduct available online and in our minds as we strive to be good Amateur Radio Operators.

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 or 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.
  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 geographic areas other 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. 

73, good luck, and good DX de W4LSG sk
