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.

Not much to report this week.  Everything has been quiet, but the weather service says we are going to have rain most of the week.  I'm going to busy all week and weekend.  I've been putting together the electronics for the race clocks.  I have most of the printed circuit boards put together, but I need to shot the troubles out of them.  I need to get six of them ready for the first road race of the spring and summer, which will be April 18th.  Then on Friday our communications group will be operating a fund raiser called Sprite Night as the local Chic-Fil-A restaurant.  On Saturday we will be holding a one day Technician Class Amateur Radio class in Marietta, Ohio.  Those wanting to hold the class have at least 16 people who want to take the class and get their licenses.  Then on Sunday several Amateurs will be heading for the woods to provide the safety communications for the Challenge at Mountwood, Mountain Bike race.  I can tell that spring is here, my calendar is already starting to fill up.

There were only 35 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Donnie Woodford, needs only one more check-in to make 500.

That's all I have for this week.  I'll give you a report on the Mountain Bike race next week.  I should be back in time to get the News started.
