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.com website.

I need to announce that Doug Haines, W8DEH, passed away Saturday afternoon. Several years ago Doug attended one of my Packet Classes.  Doug has been participating in the State Wide DAREN Net since May 2, 2009.  He last checked into the net on January 3rd, with his 214th check-ins.

Matt Gregg, KD8OMT, said the NODE that was installed in Mason County to have access to the DAREN system, has direct paths to the Jackson County NODE/PBBS of JACKWV/RPLYWV, the Wood County NODE/PBBS of WOODWV/PKBGWV, the Ritchie County NODE/PBBS of RITCWV/HRVLWV, the Roane County NODE/PBBS of ROANWV/SPNCWV, the Wirt County NODE/PBBS of WIRTWV/ELIZWV, and to the Randolph County NODE/PBBS of RANDWV/ELKNWV.

There were 50 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Bill Bayless. KB8HEK, who has been participating in the net since February 27, 1993, has completed 600 check-ins and will be receiving his certificate.

That's all I have for this week.  If you have something you want to pass along to others who read the DAREN News, let me know.
