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 this week.  I've been busy working on the racing clocks so they will be ready for the first road race.  The first road race will be held on April 27th, and I should have them all finished by then.

On February 9th the Wood County Emergency Communications group held a one day Technician Class Radio class.  Those passing the test should be receiving their licenses shortly.  We received the cancelled check back from W5YI, which let me know they received the paperwork and are processing the applications.

That's it for this week, Maybe I'll have something more interesting next week. If you have anything you would like to pass on, let me know.

There were 39 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Sammy Mercer, N8SVX, who's been participating in the net since October 14, 1995, has completed 450 check-ins and will be receiving his certificate.  I need to get the certificates printed up and mailed out to those who are waiting for theirs. I also need to get the list of all those who have been checking into the net put together and posted.  I usually have it done by the end of the year, but I'm a couple months behind this time.
