Dr. Scott Wright, K0MD, of Rochester, Minnesota, will assume the helm of National Contest Journal (NCJ) starting with the January/February 2018 issue. He will succeed Pat Barkey, N9RV, who has served as NCJ’s editor since 2015. Licensed as a teenager in 1977, Wright is a very active contester and operator.
“I started contesting actively in 2006 and enjoy all types of contests,” Wright said. “I’ve designed my home contest station to perform well in the DX contests — CQ WW, CQ WPX, ARRL DX and others.” He has set up his station for SO2R (single operator, two radio), or multi-one or multi-two contesting. He’s also an active DXer, with more than 315 DXCC entities to his credit.
