We work cooperatively with organizations and other ARI members in Friuli Venezia Giulia Region to provide needed public service communication in cases of need and disaster.

Where we do it:

ARI Emergency Radiocommunications provides emergency communication in Italy. Members are prepared to travel to nearby areas to assist other groups.

During the Polesine floodings in 1951 it begins the civil protection activity of the Italian amateur radio operators. Once large radios in short waves were necessary, while today we can use radios from the dimensions of a cellular telephone. To difference of the telephone, the communications of the amateur radio operators are possible also in all those situations that cause the block of the traditional services of telecommunication, earthquakes and floodings. The most diffuse cellular telephone always enters on a traditional telephone net via cable, subject to the breakdowns that flooding can make. An amateur radio net, beyond counting on radio repeaters in elevated position with battery emergency line, and a great number of amateur radio operators scattered on the territory. Every Italian prefecture has an A.R.I. radio room from which the Ministry of the Interior and the Department of the Civil Protection of Rome are connected employing equipment in short waves (HF). Through the frequencies in VHF, UHF and the ARI repeaters network is carried out instead the local connections, in particular for the Friuli Venezia Giulia region the connections between the four regional prefectures (Trieste, Udine, Pordenone and Gorizia), the COM (main Combined-operations centers) and eventually the SOR (Regional Operating Room) of Palmanova. The prefecture of Trieste was be before to decide of a connection packet UHF to 38,400 bps with the Itanet node of Trieste (IR3TS), from which the Itanet net comes connected all national using the packet links to 1,228,000 bps between Trieste, Aviano (PN) and Padova.
