by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA (1928)

The Radio Amateur is…

CONSIDERATE
never knowingly operating in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.

LOYAL
offering 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 beyond reproach.

FRIENDLY
with slow and patient operation when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance, co-operation 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
with station and skill always ready for service to country and community
