Freeband Academy 11DX is my contribution to the 11 meter international DXing community.

We can certainly better anticipate a higher quality operator by encouraging courteous and " professional " operation at all times on the 11 meter band.
While references to the operations within the USA is mentioned throughout the site, information presented is just as applicable to you, regardless of what country you are in. Remember .... compliance (to established procedures) and courtesy are universal in application.
