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.

Field Day Plans

Talk-in: 147.180+ 67.0, 444.475+ 67.0.

Field Day this year is scheduled for the weekend of Sat/Sun, June 24-25. As we have done for the past several years, the WCARC has plans to use the facilities of the Wood County Historical Museum on County Home Rd. The operation will begin at noon on Saturday with the traditional raising of the loop antenna.

The evening meal will be a cook out with potluck for side dishes (see Field Day Food Plans in CQ Chatter). If you can help with food, contact: Craig-NM8W or Bob-WB8NQW. If you have equipment or an antenna that you would like to contribute to the effort please contact: Bob - N1RB.

Field Day is a great opportunity for hams who have recently received their licenses to get some tips and experience in erecting antennas, setting up a station, and operating under very busy conditions.

It is a worthwhile experience if only for these activities, but it also gives us all a chance to meet our fellow hams in person.

Food plans can be found in the June issue of CQ Chatter.



Items in red are WCARC club events, green are hamfests, and gray are holidays.
