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 to report this week.  Everything has been pretty quiet.  The band seems to have changed to the better, or the trees are starting to lose their leaves.  I've been able to connect to some stations that I haven't been able to hit in a few weeks.

Don't forget that if your club or group has been planning to hold an SET (Simulated Emergency Test), it needs to be held before the last of November.

There were 53 check-ins again to this week's State Wide DAREN Net.  Ray Bodie, N8TWV, who's been participating in the net since October 28, 1995, has completed 500 check-ins.  Dave Wright, N8NWV, who's been participating in the net since March 26 2005, has completed 250 check-ins.  Joe Wigal, W8JTW, who's been participating in the net since November 24, 2007, has completed 50 check-ins.  All of these operators will be receiving their certificates just as soon as I can get them printed up.  Brad Carabine, KC8TYU, needs one check-in to make 350.
