Dear Contesters, 
I am writing to inform you of a  significant change in the CQ WW 160M 
Contest. Effective immediately, Dave  Thompson, K4JRB, is retiring from his 
leadership position as contest director.  Taking over the reigns will be Andy 
Dave has been director of CQ’s  160M contest for 16 years, stepping up and 
taking charge after former director,  Don McClennon, N4IN (formerly W3EIS and 
W3IN), passed away. During Dave’s watch,  the contest has grown by over 300% in 
terms of entries, but more importantly has  become one of contesting’s top 
tier competitions. 
The task of contest director is a  tiring and sometimes thankless job. Over 
the years, Dave has performed his job  with quiet reserve and a smile on his 
face. His reliability in delivering the  results to CQ and to the contest 
community at large will always be  appreciated. 
As we move forward, Andy, N2NT,  has some big shoes to fill. However, his 
contesting experience and  organizational skills will prevail--we can all count 
on it. 
I encourage you to take the time  to thank Dave for his faithful, 16 years of 
service. We wish both Dave and Andy  the best. Dave will continue to support 
the contest behind the scenes as the  transition to Andy takes place. In the 
meantime, I want to personally thank Dave  for his commitment and dedication to 
our sport. Well done, OM. 
73, John, K1AR
