The Radio Amateur is;
|CONSIDERATE…and never operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.LOYAL… offers loyalty, courage and support to other amateurs, local clubs and the American Radio Relay League, through which amateur radio is represented nationally and internationally.
PROGRESSIVE… with knowledge abreast of science, a well built 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 skills always ready for service to country and community.
