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: email@example.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, they say the fire at the warehouse here in Parkersburg is finally out. The smoke from the fire caused the Wood County schools to be closed all week. Now comes the task of trying to find out what caused the whole building to go up in flames so fast.
While posting the DAREN News and State Wide DAREN Net Announcement on Thursday, I wasn't able to connect to the Jackson County NODE of JACKWV or PBBS of RPLYWV. I tried for a couple days and it seemed to be down. I thought was going to add another station to the list I already have to work on. But, today it seemed to be back in operation. That NODE is the one I use to connect to the Richwood PBBS of RWODWV and Point Pleasant PBBS of PTPLWV.
Everyone have a safe Halloween. Watch out for the Trick or Treaters.
I'm starting to print the State Wide DAREN Net Check-ins Certificates for those who have been waiting for them. If all goes well I should be able to get some of them mailed out Friday when I go to town.
There were 33 check-ins to the net this week. Kendale Peterson, KD8QAK, needs only one more check-in to make 350.
That's pretty much it for this week. If you have anything to pass on to others, let me know.
