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 report this week.  I haven't heard from anyone, and I've been busy for the last few days.  I just got home about midnight tonight from the Parkersburg Homecoming.  Saturday there were at least 23 Amateur who participated in the Parkersburg Half Marathon communications.  The Amateur set up racing clocks at 12 Mile Markers and made sure they were started at the start of the race.  They also made sure the official race timers at each Mile Markers could hear the start of the race, and had their Stop Watches set at the start of the race. After the Half Marathon was over, several members of the Wood County Emergency Communications worked at the Homecoming BINGO games until the Fire Works started at 10:00 pm.  Today several members operated the BINGO games until the homecoming was over around 9:00 pm, then the work of taking everything apart, loading everything on trailers, and getting them out of the homecoming area. Now the paper work needs to be completed, and a report sent to the State Tax Department.  I hope I'm rested up for the WV ARRL State Convention next Saturday.

There were 35 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net again this week.  There was no one with any special check-ins.

That's it for this week, maybe I'll have morenews next week.
