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 Statewide 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 had mentioned that I put my wife Dot, KC8HAI, in the hospital for
health problems.  I have to announce that I lost my wife this past Wednesday,
and the funeral was yesterday.  We were married for 51 years and she has helped
me do a lot of things and supported me with all my activities.  While I was
busy with my 35 years of employment, she took care of the house and our three
kids: Jennifier (KC8UYB), Cathy (KC8DJJ), and Kevin (KC8OXY).  For 18 years
after I retired, she was with me most of the time helping, and supporting me
with most of my projects and activities.

There's not much else to report.  I'm going to be busy for awhile, but I will
still be involved with Packet Radio and Amateur Radio in general.  If you have
anything that you would pass along to other Amateurs, let me know, and I try to
get it written up in the DAREN News.

There were only 29 check-ins to the Statewide DAREN Net this week.  Sammy
Mercer, N8SVX, needs only one more check-in to make 500.
