A radio mechanic is a technical professional who builds, operates and repairs the equipment necessary for radio communications. Radio mechanics test new equipment, develop new technologies that make it possible to communicate more reliably and over longer distances, replace defective parts, troubleshoot malfunctioning radio equipment and complete repairs for individuals, organizations and the military. Many mechanics must also be innovators with a talent for improvising workable communication solutions in harsh environments and inclement weather, using limited parts.
