Famer and longtime CQ World Wide DX Contest Committee member John Dorr,
K1AR, has been named Director of the CQ World Wide DX Contest, CQ magazine
Publisher Dick Ross, K2MGA, announced today. John succeeds Doug Zwiebel,
KR2Q, who has been CQWW Director for the past two years, and who has
stepped down for personal reasons. The CQWW DX Contest is amateur radio's
most popular contest and may be the world's largest competitive sporting

years. John was elected to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame in 1997.

"John has been part of the CQ and CQWW 'families' for nearly four
decades," said Ross. "He understands this contest and the people who
make it successful - 'big guns,' 'little pistols' and behind-the-scenes
volunteers - better than almost anyone. He also has the 'big picture'
perspective of CQWW's significance in the broader world of ham radio.
We are very pleased that he has agreed to 'come back home' as CQWW
"I am honored to be asked to lead the CQWW and its incredible group of
contest committee volunteers," noted Dorr. "My sincere thanks to Doug,
KR2Q, for his decades of service to the world's best contest and its
Dorr's appointment is effective immediately.
