Amateur Radio Basic principles as in the IARU Guidelines
that should govern our code of conduct on the ham bands are:
− Social feeling, feeling of brotherhood, brotherly spirit:
large numbers of us are all playing radio on the same airwaves (our
playing field). We are never alone. All other hams are our colleagues,
our brothers and sisters, our friends. Act accordingly. Always be considerate.
−Tolerance: not all hams necessarily share your opinions, and your opinions may also not be the best ones. Understand there are other people with different opinions on a given subject. Be tolerant. This world is not for you exclusively.
never use rude language or abusive words on the bands. Such behaviour
says nothing about the person it is addressed to, but a lot about the
person behaving that way. Keep yourself under control at all times.
please understand that not everyone is as smart, as professional or as
much an expert as you. If you want to do something about it, act
positively (how can I help, how can I correct, how can I teach) rather than negatively (cursing, insulting etc.).
