Guys, usually I work my way simplex, to avoid confusion, a few hints to make our life Easier and our hobby or we called it Obsession More fun and effortless (i.e. some DX rules according to DX Code of Conduct):
to know what is "QRX" means! before asking "?" iMi or" call ?" LISTEN, LISTEN. I send my call after Each QSO. If your PC cannot read my call turn off your PC, learn CW and use ears and hand. So I Can't heard you when I am transmitting wait the end of QSO before calling please Avoid Dupes (i.e. same hour/QRG/mode), I repeat your Call and mine to confirm at the end of each QSO. So you can correct an error before logging QSO. I Update the log on line almost every 2 days, check your QSOs.
If a specific country or continent is called, don't call if you are not there! for those who Have trouble Understanding it, DON'T CALL From EUROPE if I Call JA or NA or USA And Asia etc. MORE DISCIPLINE=MORE STATIONS WORKED.
In fine you like DX, me too. so let me Enjoy DXing. to all my friends a greeting from United Arab Emirates. De A61Q M.H.Abdullah.

"lets Say Something About Amateur Radio. Been a Ham for over 52 years and have enjoyed every minute. I must say, I have met some of the most wonderful friends in this world via Ham Radio".

The ham spirit from hobby to contests
Like any organization, radio amateurs represent a community of individuals, with this small plus of sharing a common interest for radioelectricity and telecommunications by shortwaves. We all belong to the ham community respectful of the ham spirit.
Theoretically one think that people belonging to the high society or having an excellent education should be more clever than others, better prepared also to critical situations, more experimented, more diplomatist, etc. But I have to temper your feeling. Because as individual, whatever our social position, we are not different from the other people, we are males or females with our qualities and our failings, our concerns and hopes. And this is for all these reasons that sometimes the ham spirit is debased on the air.
Indeed, any psychiatrist will tell you that our private life is not much different from our public one. At a level or another we try to reproduce everywhere our own behaviours, to place our marks, etc. These are means of protection and a way to give a sense of security to our actions, all the more when they are opposite to the established rules, with all side effects that such attitudes can produce. Therefore from time to time we are face to selfish people who lack of the most elementary fair play.
The Amateur's code
Instead of discussing about the psychology of the amateur radio, let's see what is the historical definition of the ham spirit and the few usual cases - unfortunately becoming too numerous - in which it is no more respected.
The Amateur's Code
The 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 his or her national radio amateur association.
Progressive. with knowkedge 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 spirit.
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.
Written by Paul M.Segal, W9EEA, in 1928.
