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 just been hanging around the house working on several projects.  Still working on antennas that will be placed on the new tower when we get the last three section on it.  Also building UHF beam antennas that will be used on the remote receivers for the Wood County Emergency Communications 147.255 MHz voice repeater.  We ordered some 2.4 GHz Wifi NODEs that will be used on the HSMM (High Speed MultiMode) Mesh system. We've been planning on the system for several months.  We've been locating hilltop and towers that we can use for the system.  We need to start building point-to-point and omni directional antennas for the HSMM system.

There were 33 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Terry Mills, KC8TUE, needs only one more check-in to make 850.
