Welcome to the Wood County Amateur Radio Club! The club was founded in 1954 to help serve the emergency communication needs of Wood County, Ohio. The county seat is Bowling Green which is the home of Bowling Green State University. The first meetings of the club were held in the garage of one of the founders, Paul Businger, W8QZK (silent key). From these humble beginnings, the club has continued to foster the enjoyment of Amateur Radio. The club call sign is K8TIH, and the club has been affiliated as an official ARRL club since 1957. Please explore the links to the left and don't forget to join us at one of our meetings!



Repeater Problems

UPDATE 8/26: The K8TIH repeaters are out of commission until further notice. In early July, the Technical Committee responded to reports of erratic behavior and discovered that ventilation at the penthouse site had been severely curtailed. Estimated temperature at the site was over 100°F. Plans are to clean and rehabilitate the controller.

In the interim, through the good offices of Bob, W8NYY (Wood Count EC), we have permission to use the Wood County ARES machine. The frequency is 146.790- MHz with a 103.5 Hz PL tone. The regular Tuesday night net at 9:00 pm will be held on this machine.

It is not known at this time how long the repairs will take, so please stay tuned.

Breakfast Meeting

The next breakfast meeting will be Saturday, September 6th, 9:00 am at Frisch's Big Boy. Join us for an eyeball QSO and some great breakfast!
