If you've been the victim of bullying in Amateur Radio, or if you've witnessed it directly, please report your experience. There is no room for bullying in Amateur Radio and stopping it starts with you!

If you're aware of a victim, encourage them to talk about it and report it.

if you are the subject of being bullied, log the details, as much as you can remember, at the time of the event. If you are able, record the audio. Don't engage the bully. Find a friend within 24 hours and talk to them. Pick up the phone, send them an email, get in touch with someone else. Don't stew on this on your own. You did nothing wrong, it's not your fault. Don't take matters into your own hands, don't look up their address and pay them a visit. It's likely to land you into lots of trouble. Play it cool. Ignore and log it.
