The Amateurs Code


The Radio Amateur is:


Considerate... never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.


Loyal... offers loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs.


Progressive... with knowledge abreast of science, a well-built and efficient station and operation above reproach.


Friendly...slow and patient when requested; friendly advice and counsel to the beginner; kindly assistance, cooperation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.


Balanced... radio is an avocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school, or community.


Patriotic... station and skill always ready for service to country and community.


The original Amateurs Code was written by:  Paul M. Segal, W9EEA, in 1928
