DAREN News, are articles and information about the Digital Amateur Radio "Emergency" Network of WV, which operates on 145.69 MHz.  Anyone having any information about DAREN, or Amateur Radio in general, and would like to share it with others, may send it to WA8LLM @ PKBGWV on 145.69 MHz, or to my E-Mail: wa8llm@yahoo.com.  A State Wide DAREN NET is operated every Saturday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, and lately, before and after those hours.  The DAREN Net Announcement, showing the MAIN NCS, ALTERNATE NCS, NODEs accessible to both, and the previous week's check-ins, are posted by Thursday on most of the Main county DAREN PBBS'.  The DAREN News can also be found on the wc8ec.org website.
Not much news this week.  I planned on going to Wirt County yesterday to a meeting.  On the way to the meeting I was going to stop by the Wirt County NODE/PBBS of WIRTWV/ELIZWV, and change out the station.  Well, the meeting got cancelled, so I didn't go that direction.  I have a station ready to take to Wirt County, but that will happen another day.
Well, Thanksgiving is coming up this week, and so is hunting season.  If you plan on going hunting, just be careful.  I do want to wish every a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
There were 45 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Shaun Neidlinger, KB3CXQ, who's been participating in the net since December 26, 2009, has completed 150 check-ins, and will be receiving his certificate. Julie Paugh, KB3URS, needs only one more check-in to make 50.  There was one new check-in to the net this week.  I want to welcome Vincent Price, K8VEP, from Elkins, to the DAREN Net, and hope he checks in as often as possible, and uses the DAREN system.  Again this week someone checked into the net with the callsign of "CALL".  The station checked into the net around 7:00 pm Friday evening.  If you don't see your callsign on this week's State Wide DAREN Net Announcement, and think it might be yours, let me know so that I can get your check-in records caught up.
