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: email@example.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.
Gene Roy, N8ER, sent me a message that said the Randolph County NODE/PBBS of RANDWV/ELKNWV seemed to be back up to full power. He's doesn't know if someone has been working on the station, or it just healed itself. It's possible that since the trees have lost their leaves it's made the paths better. It seems that several paths have changed. I notice that with the changing of the seasons I have to change which NODEs I need to use when posting the DAREN News and State Wide DAREN Net Announcements.
I've been having a problem locating the certificate paper to print up the DAREN Net Certificates that several operators are waiting for. I have a couple print shops in Parkersburg that may be able to help me get the certificate forms. As soon as I get the paper I will be getting the certificates printed up and mailed out. I feel the certificates are just a small way to say thank you to those who participate in the weekly State Wide DAREN Net.
That's all I have for this week.
There were only 50 check-ins to this week's State Wide DAREN Net. Krista Mills, KC8VLJ, needs only one more check-in to make 350. One station checked into the net with the callsign of TEST. If you don't see your callsign on this coming week Net Announcement, and think that it may have been you, let me know so that I can give you credit for your check-in. No one but you and I will know who it was. I just want to make sure you get credit for participating in the Net.
