Dear Mark, I read your practical guide on operational procedures. I must say that I was impressed about! Is very usefull to me as I like to work DX stations and become better on this. I will keep it on my offline folder in order to have it read from time to time. Is very good to have a well written guide for this and I hope that in the future will be more and more ham to respect that word because is full of common sense.
Many thanks Mark!

Wise words, indeed, but no mention of the bad practice of "tuning-up" on-air. I have used a dummy load all my 33 years on ham radio but I am amazed at the number of shacks I have visited where the op does not have one.

Tnx Mark fer a gud article. I'm just returning to ham radio after being away for over a decade and your article was a very good refresher/instruction book. I primarily work qrp and your imphasis on being polite and courteous to your fellow hams is FB. 73, Ed, KF4KRV

I am a relatively new ham.  I had the benifit of a couple of mentors that taught me the lessons you have written about.  I was able to get my first 100 QSO's confirmed in 2006.  All on 100 watts.  I rarely gave my call more than once after spending several min. listening. I must add that I alsmost gave up on HF and DXing early on because someone was less than diplomatic when I made a mistake.  Thanks for your work hope to log you soon. Al Lewey, K7ABL.

Excellent tutorial. Very clear and well written. I just got back from operating CW as 9G5XA and I do soooo wish some of our south EU friends had read and followed your article. Apart from the usual blind callers, a new frustration is the increasing number of ops who send their own (or even my own!) call again at the beginning of their report to me. This wastes a lot of time. May I put a link to your URL on my qrz.com entry for my DX calls? 73, Alan G3XAQ.

Re QSL'ing. I often get QSL cards where the date and/or time is wrong. One area of confusion is local date (against GMT date) also local time versus GMT time. But sometimes there is NO correlation, even when I search the log and find it elsewhere. No (fairly) accurate date/time = NO QSL

Mark, thank you so very much for taking the time to write this article. It was extremely helpful and enlightening. After 10 years as a Technician I have had a renewed interest in Amateur radio since the code requirement was eliminated here in the US. I recently purchased a good HF transceiver, and upgraded my license to General on the 16th. I have been very apprehensive about making my first HF QSO. Your article has given me the guidance and confidence to make that first QSO correctly. Thank you again.

Hey Mark, goed artikel, plezierig om te lezen en voldoende suggestief, eigenlijk vind ik dit een basis om een cursus uit te schrijven, wie weerhoudt je ervan om dit eventueel niet te gaan doen ?? Recentelijk ben ik bezoek geweest op verschillende conteststations en wat er mij voornamelijk opviel is dat er nogal een gebrek is bij veel amateurs aan operating practice op meerdere gebieden...zie hier. Wat ik eigenlijk wil zeggen Mark is dat operating practice eigenlijk nog veel meer is...Daar kan jij, met jouw ervaring wel een boek rond schrijven denk ik zo...Ik herinner me nog de tijd van OT4T bij John ON4UN met jou, ON6TT, Claus,.. en de nodige voorbereidingen...... Er is nood aan goede info, en dit hier is zeker een goed begin, en eigenlijk voor de jonge, nieuwe generatie zendamateurs een must..Ik zou zeggen....vervolg op dit verhaal. Groetjes - PA4TT

Hello Marc,
Bien que je ne sois plus un débutant, il m'arrive encore de relire de temps en temps l'un ou l'autre des chapitres. C'est la preuve que je les trouve particulièrement intéressant.
Malheureusement tout le monde ne suit pas ces règles...
D'autre-part, "Pipo" autrement dit Nino, IT9RYH et son comparse IK1JUO sont devenus fous. Maintenant ils sont aussi sur 3795...C'est grave. Je ne partage pas tout à fait votre analyse de cette situation. j'ai déjà essayé le dialogue avec Nino mais sans résultat.

ik heb je net gehoord in de pile up van 3c0m. Ben hier dan verzeild geraakt en heb nog eens de operating practice doorgenomen. Het herinnerde mij er nog eens aan kalm te blijven als het dx station mij tot 2 maal toe eruit pikte terwijl de pile-up without ears maar bleef doordraven. Ik heb 3c0m toch deftig kunnen werken op 40m. Succes verder.

Dag Marc,
Gefeliciteerd met je beschrijving van de "operating practice ". Ik vind dit inderdaad iets waar veel te weinig aandacht aan besteed wordt. De text getuigt van zeer veel ervaring ( maar dat wisten we al). Verder vindt ik dat je er echt veel werk in gestoken hebt om het allemaal op een eenvoudige, begrijpelijke manier te beschrijven. Het leest zeer vlot. Waarom er geen klein boekje van maken ??

Absolutely great write-up. As an avid DXer for 50 years (Honor Roll, I remember when DX operations were conducted in this manner.

Salut Mark,

Je me présente, je m'appelle Steve et mon indicatif est VE2TKH. J'espère que ça va bien dans votre travail et que vous trouvez le temps de faire de la radio.

J'étais sur le site de FO0AAA et j'ai effectué une recherche sur google qui m'a amenée sur votre site. Je m'intéresse au UNHCR et à votre travail su sein de l'organisation. Peut-être aurons nous la chance d'en rediscuter. Meilleurs 73 du Québec.
Steve, VE2TKH
