This course teaches installation and troubleshooting technicians the key elements needed for installing, testing and maintaining antennas and masts.
The course introduces the elementary principles of radio used in all classes of service. It teaches what kinds of antenna systems exist and which offer advantages for particular applications. Siting masts is becoming more difficult and so it has become necessary to share masts where possible and also to share antennas. Methods for achieving this will be considered. However within built-up areas or areas of natural beauty new masts may need to be concealed or located in less than optimal locations. The course will address these issues and provide potential solutions.
