```you are missing some puctuation.  Also, you need to first initialize
omegaAlist to an empty list:
Clear[et1, omegaAlist];
omegaAlist = {};
For[r = 0, r <= 1, r++,

et1 = 3.444 + r*0.001;

omegaAlist = Append[omegaAlist, N[et1]];
]
Print[omegaAlist];
omegaAlist = Delete[omegaAlist, 1];

However, a much better approach is to use list-based programming:

omegaAlist = 3.444 + # 0.001 & /@ Range[0, 1]

This approafch allows you to make changes to basically the same variables as
in your For loop.  A less general way, would be:

omegaAlist = NestList[# + .001 &, 3.444, 1]
