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 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 . . . station and skill always ready for service to country and
