IARU ENDORSED BOOKLET PROMOTING ETHICS. Bill Moore, NC1L, ARRL Awards
Manager, reports on the DXCC Blog Web page: "A 67-page booklet, 'Ethics
and Operating Procedures for the Radio Amateur' by John Devoldere, ON4UN,
and Mark Demeuleneere, ON4WW, is available for free download from the
ARRL Web site. The booklet is an 'Americanized' version of the booklet
that the authors wrote for an international audience. An international
version is also available. At its June 2008 meeting, the IARU Administra-
tive Council endorsed and recommended the principles set out in the
booklet as a means of encouraging all radio amateurs 'to operate to the
highest levels of proficiency, with proper consideration for others using
the amateur radio bands' and as a tool 'to teach newcomers and others
correct operating behavior.' The booklet mainly addresses HF operating
issues, but the principles are also applicable to VHF and higher bands.
ARRL Chief Executive Officer and IARU Secretary David Sumner, K1ZZ,
expressed appreciation for Devoldere's and Demeuleneere's efforts:
'The authors are well known, experienced HF operators who are concerned
about on-the-air operating standards and who decided that 'It's better
to light a candle than curse the darkness.' Anyone who reads their
booklet will learn something, no matter how experienced they may be.'"

hand written. They are definitely worth the wait. Vladimir tells 'The
Daily DX' that about 50% of the direct QSL cards have been answered.
He does not think the job will be completed by year's end. Do not resend
at this time as it will only slow down everything. DXers who are waiting

is listed on QRZ.com."
