ARRL Staff Changes Announced

Paul Bourque, N1SFE, has been named the ARRL's new Contest Program Manager. He succeeds Bart Jahnke, W9JJ, who was recently promoted to be the League's Radiosport and Field Services Manager. Bourque grew up in Newington, Connecticut, where ARRL Headquarters is located, according to the ARRL Letter, which reports that he is "coming home" after a career in broadcasting.

On the volunteer side of League activities, longtime ARRL ARDF Coordinator Joe Moell, K0OV, has stepped down after more than two decades of organizing and promoting amateur radio direction-finding ("foxhunting") in the United States. He is succeeded by Jerry Boyd, WB8WFK, of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Moell will continue in his position of "Homing In" editor of CQ and coordinator of the annual CQ World Wide Foxhunting Weekend. See Joe's August "Homing In" column in CQ for more on his experiences and an introduction of Jerry.
