Broadcast Radio Technicians install and maintain radio transmitters in the base or repeater stations. They essentially assist licensed telecommunications engineers working behind the scenes in broadcast television and radio stations. They work as a team to make possible the airing and cable transmission of programs to the station franchise area. These technicians basically do what the engineers do minus the ability to design, modify or enhance broadcast transmitting systems.
