Hi! I'm Andy

Romeo Whiskey Three Always Happy"


My way to Amateur Radio

The main office and headquarters of the Russian Amateur Radio Emergency
Service (RARES) is located in Moscow, Russia.
This is the telecommunication center of the Russian
Amateur Radio Emergency Services (RARES) sponsored by EMERCOM of Russia.
From this center we control and maintain connections with our regional
departments located throughout Russia, from Siberia in the Far East to
European Russia in the West. RARES H.Q. is the working digital network of the first Russian DXCluster R3ARES, with more NET/ROM systems of the VHF/UHF and Internet Gateways. RARES also co-operates with the professional Rescue Services in Moscow and with many other cities in Russia.

The H.Q. and RARES operating "under the roof" of EMERCOM (we are about 500 meters from Red Square - the Kremlin). The callsign of RARES H.Q is R3ARES and RE3A.
RE3A has been active in Rwanda, Africa as 9X/RE3A since March 1997 to the present time. (QSL via RW3AH).

Since 1988 I've been a Rescue Officer and the Chief Coordinator of the Russian Amateur Radio Emergency Service (RARES) in the Ministry of Emergency Situations and Civil Defense of Russian Federation (EMERCOM).
Rescue operations is my life! Russian ARES is active everyday:

RARES HF-NET Daily (incl. Sat and Sun)

QRV-14347 KHz SSB/CW at 07:00 AM GMT (Winter), and 06:00 AM GMT (Summer).
14292 and  14347 KHz. is a duty emergency channel
