(Hicksville, NY – March 27, 2020) – Former CQ WPX Contest Director Randy Thompson, K5ZD, has been appointed interim director of the on-air competition following the resignation of Terry Zivney, N4TZ. Zivney had been contest director for the past seven years. The WPX Contest is amateur radio’s second-most popular competition, with only the CQ World Wide DX Contest drawing more entrants each year.

“We thank Terry for his excellent work in administering and promoting the WPX Contest,” said CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, “and we will miss him as part of our contesting staff. I am looking forward to working closely again with Randy, who has been part of our contest leadership team for many years.”

Thompson, who has also previously served as director of the CQ World Wide DX Contest, is a long-time CQ Contest Committee member and administrator of the various CQ contesting websites. Experienced contesters who are interested in “giving back” to the contesting community by administering a major contest are invited to apply for the position of WPX Contest Director. Inquiries and applications should be directed to CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, via e-mail to <w2vu@cq-amateur-radio.com>.
