Wireless communications technicians help to build and maintain the infrastructure supporting wireless communications systems. Wireless communications systems encompass two-way radios, cellular phones, beepers, wireless Internet (WiFi) access, hand-held computers, vehicle location equipment, marine radios, satellite systems and related equipment, and other personal communications devices. Technicians are needed to maintain the complex networks relaying wireless signals as well as to maintain and repair personal communications devices themselves.
Wireless communications technicians must be familiar with electronics, digital radio technology, and cellular systems. They use measuring and diagnostic tools to test, adjust, and repair electronic equipment.
Technicians must be able to read work orders that describe equipment failures, and they must be able to talk to equipment operators to determine what problems exist with the equipment. If the equipment has serious problems, technicians must be able to use schematic drawings and other written specifications to locate and repair problems.
Field technicians visit sites where wireless communications break down—either work sites where personal communication devices are used or relay sites maintained by the wireless network itself. Field technicians also do regular maintenance work on personal communication devices used by corporate clients as well as periodic work to maintain the wireless networks. Climbing may be required in emergency situations.
