The Amateur’s Code

(originally written by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA in 1928)

1. The Amateur is always Considerate
He never knowingly uses the air in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of other persons.

2. The Amateur is Loyal
He offers his loyalty, encouragement and support to his fellow radio amateurs, his Club and to the South African Radio League, through which Amateur Radio is represented.

3. The Amateur is Progressive
He keeps his station abreast of science. It is well built and efficient. His operating practice is above reproach.

4. The Amateur is Friendly
Slow and patient sending when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance, co-operation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the marks of true Amateur Spirit.

5. The Amateur is Balanced...
Radio is his hobby. He never allows it to interfere with any of the duties he owes to his home, his job, his school, or his community.

6. The Amateur is Patriotic
His knowledge and his station are always ready for the service of his country and his community.
