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: 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.
Not much to report this week, everything has been quiet. There are very few activities going on, and the snow just keeps falling.
There are a couple of Hamfests coming up shortly. One is sponsored by the Plateau Amateur Radio Association, and is at Oak Hill, in Raleigh County. The Hamfest is on February 12th. You can get more information by checking out the website: www.plateau.9f.com. The other Hamfest is in Charleston. The Charleston Hamfest will be held on March 19th at the Coonskin Armory, 1707 Coonskin Drive. As I get more information these Hamfests, and others, I will put it here in the News.
That's all I have for this week. If you have anything you want to pass on to other Amateurs, or something you would like to know about, let's put it here in the News and see if we can get an answer.
There were 63 check-ins to this week's State Wide DAREN Net. Ray Gorrell, WV8RG, needs only one more check-in to make 850. Ken Riffle, KB8QPW, needs only one more check-in to make 700. And Tom Di Bacco, AC8HQ, needs only one more check-in to make 50. Before I get too far behind again on Check-in Certificates, I need to start getting them printed up. With the weather cold and snow I should be able to find the time.
