My name is Karen Tadewosyan, radioamateur callsign is RA3APW.          I was born in Moscow in 1959. I was fond of radioelectronics when I was twelve. 

I graduated the Radiotechnics Faculty of Moscow Power Engineering  Institute (MEI) specializing in radioelectronic devices in 1982. Then I developed active UHF transmitting modules for phased lattice antennas and some other things at a research institute in Moscow. 

Since 1976 I had been working at the club station UK3AAC of MEI. 
I spent much time on the air in VHF and UHF contests then. I got the call sign RA3APW of the third grade in 1980. I have the first grade call sign since 1996.

In 1989 I begun packet radio activities. In 1991-1992 I developed some models of packet radio controllers.

In 1992 I begun the work for integratation the Internet and the packet radio. The first AMPR gateway in exUSSR was set up at DEMOS company in 1993. At that time I was nominated as the national coordinator of the AMPR network [44.178/16] in Russia.

I am active on 9600 bps packet satellites KO-23, KO-25 and UO-22  since 1996.

Nowadays I'm developing devices and software for packet radio telemetry in cooperation with Alexander Sidorin, RX3ARH.

I'm working as the chief of technical department of the Compass+Radio company.
