Pros: one person to a room
Cons: reduced pay for travel, no home life, and arbitrary changes made without notification but would still be written up for not knowing.
A typical day at work started by arriving at the work site about the time the sun was coming up. Initial daily paperwork was completed and I would task crew members to the tasks that need completion throughout the day. Simply put, depending upon the phase of work the installation was on we would be hanging antennas, RRHs, Squids, and lines on the tower top and routing lines. On the ground, as the foreman, I would typically be in contact with the carrier's technicians to verify sectors were shut down to safely install hardware on tower top. I would also be sweeping and PIMing lines to make sure they were correct, as well as performing scopes and power readings on fiber trunks. The final touches would be hooking everything into the cabinet in the shelter and completing end of day paperwork and submitting to my CM.
