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.

Well, it's Thanksgiving week, and tomorrow is the first day of Deer Hunting by Gun Season.  I hope everyone is safe in the woods, if you are going out hunting.  Also anyone who is going into the woods just to walk, be careful.

I want to wish everyone a happy and very safe Thanksgiving holiday.  Don't eat too much, but enjoy what you have.

Wood County Emergency Communications is planning on holding a one day Technician Class License class on December 3rd.  The class will be held at the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department in Parkersburg starting at 9:00 am.  W5YI VE Testing will be held at the completion of the class.  The class will be limited to 30 students.  So far, a couple from as far away as Huntington has talked about taking the class

There were 56 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Tricia Magyarosi, KC8VLI, who's been participating in the net since December 28, 2002, has completed 400 check-ins, and will be receiving her certificate.  Roy Humes, N8RH, needs only one more check-in to make 750.
