Here at RHR we take operating legally and ethically very seriously. Every user is educated on the process of operating remote and what the “ethical” protocol is.

When operating from our IT9 or KH6 stations, operators are ETHICALLY and LEGALLY required to sign KH6/YOURCALL and IT9/YOURCALL.

When operating from within the U.S. we recommend the following examples. Its important to remember that the other station does NOT care where you are sitting, they only care where the TRANSMITTER is.

SSB on 6m: Operating from W7/Portland

JA1ABC this is WW2DX you are 59 OM into grid square CN85 Oregon 73!

CW on 6m:

JA1ABC de WW2DX TU OM UR 5NN CN85 OR OR 73

10m-160m SSB: Operating from W1/Calais

ON4UN this is WW2DX you are 59 into Maine TU 73

CW:

ON4UN de WW2DX UR 5NN ME ME 73 . .
We also recommend that user create additional “Stations” in TQSL to properly sign each QSO from the appropriate station. This will ensure that ALL QSO’s are valid using the correct GRID, COUNTY and STATE when uploaded to LOTW.

As with our contractual terms, if a user is found not to be operating LEGALLY and/or ETHICALLY, their membership will be revoked with no refund.
