I was pleased to receive the following e-mail from Randy, W6SJ this morning.
You were among the dedicated operators to show your support of the DX Code of Conduct project. You and the other respondents energized me to really get some effort behind a project to change things. We gradually attracted a committee of high profile people, many of whom you might know as dedicated HF operators.
The result is that the DX Code of Conduct has been translated into over two dozen languages. Many of the national societies have featured in in their magazines and have links at their websites.
We developed a section for DXpeditioners and have gotten incredible support from them. All have supported us and they are listed too. After all, they are the real beneficiaries of polite operating.
We also have spread the word through a number of clubs and we just developed a Power Point that is designed to be shown at club meetings.
Please take a look at our website www.dx-code.org and see our progress. Note that we have had over 5500 unique visitors.
Your enthusiasm was important to me and the others on the team and you should feel pride at having given us the courage to try to change the situation.
Please take this opportunity to tell the rest of your friends about the project and encourage them to support it as well..
Please let me know if your club would be interested in seeing the Power Point once it is ready for release.
Randy also goes on to say “PS – This site and the Power Point were developed with my pretty feeble HTML 3.0 skills and both it and the PPT could benefit from some enhancement by a person with “artistic website skills.” If that describes you, perhaps you might want to volunteer to help us create a 21st Century look. “
It’s great to see that the DX Code of Conduct is receiving plenty of support. I hope that will translate to plenty of support on the bands too. We can but hope. And if you can help Randy with the web presentation of his excellent ideas, then I hope you’ll get in touch.
