Woodford County Amateur Radio Club members
Greg Shaw N4GOS, and Richard Jones AJ1W (not pictured)
discussed material with Versailles Boy Scout Troop 43
as they worked on their Radio Merit Badge.
The troop learned about various aspects of radio
communication including Amateur radio.
The Radio Merit Badge presentation was divided into
three weekly modules, finishing up on March 14, 2017.
We now have EchoLink on the 145.33 Repeater!

The W.C.A.R.C. is an organization of amateur radio operators in Woodford County. The club has approximately 30 members. Thanks to the dedicated effort of some experienced operators in recruiting new HAMs, the club was reorganized in October 1992 from the dormant Woodford Amateur Radio Society. Since it’s revival, the W.C.A.R.C. has been active in community affairs.The club has organized an active ARES® group in Woodford County, supplies communications support for local events such as the Versailles Holiday Parade and the Jaycess 5k Run and is active in training new hams. There are also club events to participate in on a regular basis. The A.R.R.L. field day that is held each June is a major event. One year the club sponsored a special events station at the Kentucky Horse Park the weekend before the Kentucky Derby. During the year there are antenna building parties, fox hunts, the Christmas Party and the ever popular let’s get together, cook out and eat! Last, but not least, don’t forget the annual fund raiser. The raffle for various prizes donated by local businesses.
The Woodford County Amateur Radio Club exists to be of service to the community in which we live and to enjoy the fellowship of other amateurs, and to bring in new licensed operators through training classes, and mentoring the new amateurs in setup and operation of the hobby.
If you are interested in becoming an Amateur Radio operator or if you are currently a HAM and would like to find out more about the W.C.A.R.C. we would be glad to have you visit the club meetings.
The W.C.A.R.C. meets on the first Wednesday of the month, at 7:00 p.m. at Versailles Fire Dept. Station #2 at 100 Big Sink Pike in Versailles, Kentucky. Enter behind building in the basement into the WOODFORD Co. EOC.
