This is  a multi-day course that takes place on Monday and Tuesday.

Microwave radio continues to be a major part of radio and data transmission systems. Wireless carriers continue to deploy microwave systems for data backhaul, and with the advancement of LTE for public safety the need for microwave communications continues to grow.  This course is designed for students who encounter point to point radio at microwave frequencies. Students will learn how radio works in all applications, how digital transmission (modulation) is derived for high speed data, the principals of microwave frequency propagation and antenna systems.  Information will be provided on best practices for installation and maintenance of microwave radio including the use of related tested equipment. Federal regulators and OSHA RF safety training will be included in this course.  An ETA certification test is included for those taking this course.  The instructor for this course is Tom Dover, president of DTS.  Tom has more than 50 years of experience installing, maintaining and teaching microwave radio systems in all applications. Much of this course will be devoted to testing and troubleshooting approaches for radio technicians. 

Course Cost: $899 (through 2/23); $949 (2/24 – 3/31)
