DX Code of Conduct

1) I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.

2) I will only call, if I can copy the DX station properly.

3) I will not trust the DX 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 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 I call.

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 requests 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.

The DX Code of Conduct was revived in 2010 by Randy Johnson W6SJ. He started the Website DX-Code.org and offered the DX Code in several languages.

Together with John ON4UN I provided the Dutch version. That has been on the website till about april 2017.  Randy W6JS  passed away on 27 march due to complications after heartsurgery. He was 79 years old.

The Dutch version that was on DX-code.org is in the picture below
