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 please join us at one of our meetings!




The December WCARC business meeting, on Monday, December 11, at 7:30 PM/ 7:00 EB, will not be held at the Sheriff’s Training Facility as is usual. Due to a scheduling conflict, it has been moved to the WB8NQW QTH at 14118 Bishop Rd. in Bowling Green.

In addition to the usual business meeting, Bob will also display some of the Club's surplus equipment items that are available for purchase by members.

Kick-off Banquet: Reservations

The annual Kick-off banquet will be held in Wayne, OH, on Monday, January 8, at 6:00 pm.

Once again WCARC will start off the new year with the annual Kick-off Banquet. This year the event will be held at the Country Farmhouse restaurant, 117 E. Main St., in Wayne, OH. The banquet has been held there for the past several years and the food has been more than delicious. Festivities begin at 6:00 PM. Ordering will be off a limited menu.

Please let Bob, WB8NQW, know if you plan to attend by January 1, 2024. This yearly get-together is always a good opportunity to have an eyeball QSO with Club members you have only talked to on the air.



Items in red are WCARC club events, green are hamfests.
