    Which country do you thing has the best ham operators. The most polite and patient . That includes good radio etiquette. Giving their call signs every 15 minutes in a QSO, listening for QRP stations, giving correct signal reports. I know a lot of countries speak English as a second or even a third language. Where do the most aggressive hams come from. Answer a pacific country, please do not mention any hams by their call signs, only their country.......

    I'd give Japan the trophy. Just had another great example last night. DX stations you can actually have a conversation with!

    North Korea. You never hear a keyclick or splatter from any P5 domestic operator, they never step on contacts in the pileups, and they never interfere with net operations.

    I'd probably go with Japan as well.

    Yuppers, Japan has very polite and patient operators.
    For the most aggressive, it's a toss up between the good ole USA (by the shear weight of numbers) but per capita you have to give a wink and nod to Italy.

    Have fun

    I'll go with Japan as well.

    Especially if you like real QSL cards.

    It's almost like they are not there at all.

    Some of the purtiest QSL cards I've ever received are from Japan. And talk about prolific - what other group will send a new card for every QSO, every mode, every band? I have some callsigns in my QSL collection a dozen times.

    But to work JA's on SSB is always a treat - so totally polite and conversational most of the time, provided they have the English skills - which most do in my experience - cuz my Japanese is pretty poor outside of "arigato" :)

    Seems like the JA's are by far the most polite. I have only heard them on websdr's, never made a QSO with one (let alone heard one). But my antenna pattern seems to be pointed NE/SW.

    I vote for any country where the words "amateur" and "operators" are properly spelled ...
