CQ NEWS RELEASE (Announcing: 2017 Inductees, CQ Contest Hall of Fame)
- Dave Robbins, K1TTT, and Bob Wilson, N6TV, Inducted into CQ Contest Hall of Fame - (Xenia, OH - May 20, 2017) - CQ magazine today announced the induction of two new members to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame, which honors those contesters who not only excel in personal performance, but who also "give back" to the hobby in outstanding ways. CQ Contesting Editor David Siddall, K3ZJ, presented Hall of Fame plaques at an induction ceremony held at the annual Dayton contest dinner on May 20th.

The 2017 inductees to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame are:

 * Dave Robbins, K1TTT, is the builder and owner of a contest super-
   station in western Massachusetts. Soon after assembling his first
   contest station, Dave wrote in the introduction to his book, Building
   a Superstation, "I realized I was not a 48-hour iron pants operator
   and decided to start doing multi-ops from here..." Over the past 30+
   years, Dave has hosted legions of operators at his multi-multi station,
   some veterans, some newcomers, and willingly shared his knowledge and
   experiences, both in his building book and his annual Contest Cook-
   books, distributed to members of the Yankee Clipper Contest Club (YCCC),
   of which Dave is a past president. You can see webcams of his current
   station and much more information at .

 * Bob Wilson, N6TV, is an accomplished contester and contest DXpeditioner,
   but his achievements behind the scenes are as significant as those he's
   made on the air. A regular speaker at Contest University and the Inter-
   national DX Convention's Contest Academy, Bob has developed new tech-
   niques and technologies to enhance logging and score-keeping software
   and to advance SO2R (Single Operator, 2 Radios) operating, along with
   the efficiency of software defined radios, CW Skimmer, the Reverse
   Beacon Network and more.

  The CQ Contest Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to recognize those
amateurs who have made major contributions to the art of radio contesting.
This year's inductions bring the total number of members of the CQ Contest
Hall of Fame to 69.
