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 www.wc8ec.com and www.wc8ec.org websites.

Well, the Parkersburg/Wood County Hamfest is getting closer.  The Hamfest will be held next Saturday, October 8th.  Terry Mills, KC8TUE, Joe Rice, KD8YVB, and I are planning to go to Columbus, Ohio, this coming Tuesday.  We are going to Universal Radio to pick up radios for the 2017 Hamfest, and some door prizes for this year's Hamfest.  We are going to be busy on Tuesday, since we will also be providing the safety communications for a couple Middle School Cross Country races that start at 5:00 pm, and then go to the WCEC (Wood County Emergency Communications) business meeting that starts at 7:00 pm.  I've been getting telephone calls from several people reserving tables for the Hamfest. It looks like there may be several people there.  I'll be spending all day Thursday getting everything picked up and loaded in a truck and trailer that will be headed for the Hamfest.  If you need any information about the Hamfest, check out the website: www.wc8ec.org

There were 31 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net again this week.

News has sure been slim lately.  That's all I have for this week.
