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.

Last week I reported that Kendale Peterson, KD8QAK, was to have his final
interview with the Boy Scout leaders on Wednesday.  I'm proud to say that
everything went fine, and that Kendale is now an Eagle Boy Scout.

Thursday I had to take my wife Dot, KC8HAI, to the hospital.  Dot has been
having trouble walking and forgetting things.  She was in the hospital for
three days back in October for the same thing.  She seemed to be doing better
until Thursday.  They will be doing some more tests to see what the problem
might be.

There were 32 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Matt Gregg,
WV8MAT, who's been participating in the net since September 30, 2014, has
completed 100 check-ins, and will be receiving his certificate.

Not much else to report this week.
