Any appropriately licensed Amateur Radio Operator who has not specifically been excluded is welcome on the BeachNet Repeater System, provided they abide by the following...



1. Observe and obey all FCC Regulations with respect to the Amateur Radio Service, as contained in Title 47, Part 97, of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Lead by example.


2. Respect all Amateurs using the BeachNet Repeater System, and strive to encourage the participation and enjoyment of others. Leave a pause between every transmission to allow another user to join in. Extend the hand of friendship. We are all part of the Amateur Radio Fraternity. This two-way radio hobby is a lot more fun if there are other Hams to talk to.


3. We live in an area dominated by a tourist economy. Make our guests feel welcome. Be the friendly, helpful Ham they talk about when they return home.


4. Help make Amateur Radio in general, and the BeachNet Repeater System in particular, a pleasant place to hang out. You do not have to "like" every other Ham, but be civil and polite, even friendly. Keep it light. Keep it "G-Rated". Keep it fun. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Don't say anything you wouldn't say in front of your best friend's 10-year old daughter. For those who must get on the radio while "chemically impaired", you are not welcome here.


5. Emergency communication has absolute top priority at all times. The best way to be ready in an emergency is to become familiar with the resources at hand. BeachNet is one of those resources. The more familiar we all are with its strengths and limitations, the more value the community can derive from the Amateur Radio Service when it is needed most.


6. Jamming and deliberate interference are to be ignored. Do not talk to a jammer on the air. Do not talk about a jammer on the air. That is exactly the recognition they want. It is possible talking to the "suspect" could be considered "entrapment", making prosecution more difficult. The FCC has successfully prosecuted jammers in the past, with license revocation, fines and/or jail time. If you hear anyone abusing the system, and have specific information as to time, place or identity, please contact a control operator by telephone or email. If presented with such an issue, the owners, licensees and control operators will handle the situation.


7. Control Operators will be designated at the sole discretion of the system owners/licensees. Only Control Operators are authorized to send Dual Tone Multi Function (DTMF) "Touch Tone"(R) signals over the system to command the repeaters, remote bases, auxiliary receivers and other components that comprise the BeachNet system. Except as explicitly authorized by a Control Operator, Owner, or Licensee, no other user shall send DTMF control tones over the BeachNet System. Any attempt to "Hack" a repeater system by an unauthorized person is considered a very serious offense within the Amateur Community, equivalent to attempting to pick the lock in order to break into the home station of another Amateur.


8. The BeachNet Owners, Licensees and Control Operators retain the authority, expressed in 97.205(e), to exclude any individual from using the BeachNet System.
