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.

Not much to report on this week.  I've been busy getting the DAREN Records together, and putting them back in order.  I've been using old DOS computer programs since the DAREN system started, and I've been wanting to convert them all to Windows programs which will make it easier to transfer the information. For the past few weeks I've wanted to do that, but just didn't have time. Now I have to do it, to get the information restored.  I've been getting that information together while the weather is too cold and/or wet to be outside. When it's warm enough to be outside to work, I've been working on the 150 plus metal folding chairs that I reported on last week.  I need to get them done before the first of June, that's when one of the Volunteer Fire Departments will be holding their Ice Cream Social, and they will be borrowing the chairs. They will also be borrowing our tables and the two 24 foot by 40 foot canopies.  Even though most of our groups activities are over for this year, doesn't mean I get to rest.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.  Also deer season starts tomorrow, so if you are going to be in the woods hunting, be very careful.

There were 36 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Until I can get my records put back together after the Hard drive on my Packet station went bad, I won't be able to report on the number of check-ins that each of the regular participants of the State Wide DAREN Net has.  I have the information about the nets on several different storage devices.  I just need to get the information together.  As soon as I get everything caught up, I'll give a report.  Keep supporting the DAREN system and the State Wide DAREN Net.  Thanks and 73
