Amateur Radio Code

hamradioopThe 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 interest of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur service.

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.

Hello. I live in Ridge Manor and have been licensed since 1988. I serve GCARC as a board member, Public Information Officer (PIO) as well as the club's webmaster and social media manager. I also try to maintain the Clubhouse. I operate mostly the Digital modes on HF such as FT8 ,PSK, and OLIVIA. On VHF/UHF I stay on Yaesu System Fusion locally. I have been doing presentations for local clubs about WIRES-X and Fusion for the past couple of years.
