VERSACOM LLC has multiple openings for Certified Tower Climbers (and Ground Professionals) for Site work for IMMEDIATE deployment.
The Certified Climbers will need the standard climbing and LOS tools of the trade.
For those who are without climbing experience and want to stay on the ground and work on the close out packages, labeling pictures, etc, that is fine but you must have very good MS Excel/ Office software knowledge.
This is a very good project, long term that will turn into Microwave work at the next phase. The path pay is very good for teams that turn out the work.
Requirements: Climbing, anritsu, connector, and other wireless certifications are a plus. Candidate must have 1-2 years in directly related wireless cell tower construction, including: tower climbing, repelling, sweep testing, ginpole usage, stacking monopoles, erecting towers and other aspects. Candidate must demonstrate computer literacy. Must be team-oriented and in good physical condition. Successful candidate will have the following skills and abilities: knowledge of knots and rigging, ability to follow an antenna plumbing chart, knowledge in RET systems and installation, knowledge in routing and supporting coax and jumpers, knowledge in grounding specifications for all major carriers, ability to be stationed and work out of man lift equipment, and the ability to climb heights. Candidates must be available to travel extensively within regional states, including overnight stays.
Hourly Starting $25+ (Depending on your experience)
This is for North and South Texas markets.
Perform visual microwave line-of-sight survey for each proposed link. Note that some links have critical LOS or only visible from certain rooftop locations so possible LOS locations need to be checked.
If visual LOS cannot be confirmed due to poor visibility, limited clearance or for other reasons, perform path survey and obtain obstruction locations and heights along path.
Identify any critical obstruction that will obstruct microwave path using LOS survey form.
Using Pathloss 5 path profile provided, ensure that adequate Fresnel Zone clearance is observed from obstruction to visual line-of sight.
Required tools & materials for team depending upon whether the Tech is a Tower Tech/ Climber or a Ground Tech:
Laptop with Google Earth to use during LOS survey
Google Earth to use with laptop. High speed (3G) PC modem is recommended to use real-time during survey
Digital Camera capable of minimum 10 x optical zoom, wide angle view, minimum 10 Mega pixels
Binoculars, minimum 10x50
Mirror or high power strobe light for signaling for visual survey method
Handheld or laptop GPS with WAAS capability to obtain accurate elevation
Laser Rangefinder for measuring rooftop height above ground and distance to obstructions
Climbers must be Certified by an industry accepted certification company.
Other Tower (Top Hand) projects down the line after the LOS work:
The possible other duties include:
· Microwave installation and antenna, TMA.
· R.E.T. system set-up and troubleshooting.
