The Amateur's Code, written by Paul M. Segal, callsign: W9EEA in 1928, is a set of guiding principles and ethical guidelines for amateur radio operators. The code aims to promote good conduct, mutual respect, and responsible behavior within the amateur radio community. It serves as a foundation for promoting a positive and constructive environment for all radio amateurs worldwide. The code is often cited as a key reference for amateur radio operators and is widely recognized by the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) member societies. Below is the text of the Amateur's Code:

"The Amateur's Code"
