http://www.wc8ec.orgDAREN 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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
I just don't have anything much to report this week. Everything has been quiet, and I haven't heard from anyone. For three weeks in a row there was one operator who was checking into the State Wide DAREN using the callsign of "CALL". I noticed that it wasn't on this week's net. They may have found the mistake on their TNC, and corrected it. If you have been checking into the net the last three weeks and haven't seen your call on the weekly Net Announcement, let me know. I just want to make sure that everyone gets the credit they deserve for participating in the nets.
That's all I have for this week. I know it's short, but when there's nothing reported, I can't write about it.
There were 47 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week. I've been getting things ready for the holidays, so I haven't started printing up the certificates that need to be mailed out. I'm not too far behind, and hope to get started on them shortly.
