- IMAGINE … hearing about world events as they happen from people who are there. Listening to far off places with strange names …

The Amateur’s 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, and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.
- PROGRESSIVE … With knowledge abreast of science, a well-built and efficient station and operation above reproach.
- FRIENDLY … Slow and patient operating 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 Amateur’s Code was written by: Paul M Segal, W9EEA, in 1928.
Words of Wisdom
- “For every $1 spent on an antenna, it’s like spending $10 worth of radio or amplifier equipment.”
- “Improve your antenna, improve your signal — then buy a fancy radio and amp … otherwise your fancy new radio and amp is just a costly space heater.”
