Tower technicians maintain electronic equipment both at the bottom and the top of the tower (or other structure). The technologies involved are Fiber Optic, DC and AC electric, Radio Frequency and other electronic type devices. Tower Technicians must use advanced electronic skills and equipment to identify and correct issues that degrade or prevent the client’s equipment from properly functioning. RF sweep equipment, PIM testers, DMM meters, Watt meters, Oscilloscopes, Fiber Optic OTDR and power measurement equipment, RDF and Fiber cleaning and connectorizing equipment and sound troubleshooting skills are required to be a successful Tower Technician.
Our TIA Inspectors
Our TIA Inspectors audit and inspect communication structures and their surrounding compounds. Inspectors prepare, submit and upload detailed reports on a daily basis. The audit, using excel, provides the tower owner with an accurate inventory and pictures of all equipment mounted on their tower. The inspection provides the tower owner with documentation and photographs of the tower with an emphasis on anything compromising the safety of the area surrounding the tower and anything compromising the integrity of the tower itself. Proper performance of these comprehensive inspections require the inspector, in addition to performing a detailed visual inspection of the entire tower, to use tools and accurately interpret data gathered from tools. These tools include surveying instruments, tension meters, laser range finders and ultrasound. Our inspectors travel most of the calendar year and must be physically capable of climbing towers which can range in heights up to 500 ft. Our two main teams average 2 to 3 structures per day.
