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 2020 Status

This year the ARRL has modified the Field Day rules so that individuals who operate at home under class 1 D or 1 E can have their scores added to the Club's main score. We will be operating at the Wood County Historical Museum with a special call, W8C, in honor of the Wood County Bicentennial. If you operate from home, you will of course be using your own call. If you are a WCARC member, you recieved instructions from N1RB how to get your operations credited to the club's total.

Breakfast Meeting

The next breakfast meeting will be Saturday, July 4th, 9:00 am at Frisch's Big Boy. Join us for an eyeball QSO and some great breakfast - all welcome to attend!
