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.

Well, one month down and only eleven more to go.  In a couple of days the Groundhog will tell us if we have six more weeks of winter.  If you look at the calendar you'll see there is six about more weeks of winter whether he sees his shadow or not.  Not much to write about this week.

We have added another station to the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) HSMM (High Speed MultiMedia) system.  The station was installed on the roof of the Mid-Ohio Valley Heath Department building.  The station will be used to cover some of the Parkersburg area as soon as we get it improved.  We may be able to do a little more work on it this coming Saturday when the Wood County Emergency Communications group will be holding a One Day Technician radio class at the Health Department.

Not much else to report.  The weather man says we have a snow storm coming this week, and maybe another one next week end.  Outside work is going to be slowed down some what.

There were 37 check-ins to the State Wide DAREN Net this week.  Michael Turner, K4MIC, needs only one more check-in to make 50.
