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 hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and got what they wanted. There's nothing to report this week, things have just been slow. The New Year will be here in a couple of days and things may get back to normal. I've been working on the State Wide DAREN Net Check-in Report. I've taken stations who have not checked into the net for some time off the list. Stations who have only checked into the net once and haven't been back in the last year have been removed from the list. Stations who have checked into the net at least twice and haven't checked into the net in the last two years have also been removed from the list. All stations are still on record as checking in. Stations who have been taken off the list, but are starting to check in again, will be put back on the list and their original check-in count added. A list of those who are still on the check-in list will be posted after this DAREN News gets posted.
There were 47 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week. Everyone have a very Happy and safe New Year.
