This course focuses on the configuration and testing of real-world radio systems. Digital radio systems using both conventional and trunked mode operation will be configured, modified, tested and documented. IP Switching and Routing protocols will be used to configure wireless applications such as Radio over IP (RoIP), Wireless LANs and Point to Point communications systems. Advanced antenna systems will be built and tested, and radio site power systems will be introduced. Students will learn the correct usage of technical manuals and radio system documentation. Advanced troubleshooting methodologies using logical fault finding are explored in the lab. Additional training in industry specific hand skills related to radio systems installation will be provided. General safety practices specifically related to the RF industry will also be reviewed.
