Subject: Real! Radio Job in San Angelo, Tx with TxDOT

Greetings to All !!!

The Texas Dept of Transportation (TxDOT, who I work for) has an opening
at the San Angelo TxDOT Headquarters for a Radio Coordinator (radio
tech).

TxDOT is looking for a “Real Radio Person” to fill the Radio
Coordinators position in San Angelo, TX. The current person is retiring
Aug 31, 2019.

This is not NOT!!! an IT job…this is real, no kidding RF radio work
job.

I like to say we do “Professional Ham Radio”.

TxDOT uses mostly VHF, P25 and analog communications, Motorola radios
and a real! HF network.

However, we are getting more and more into 700/800MHz trunking, Sat
comms, command platforms and event response.

Pay will depend on number of years of experience and work experience in
radio (mainly public safety or military related, but ham radio does
count).

See the job posting for job qualifications.

Here is the URL for the job:

Desired additional qualifications are:
Amateur Radio License, prefer General class, but tech will work if
upgraded to general quickly.
GROL or some kind of industry certification such as ETAI CET, Naber,
APCO etc.
COML, COMT, AUXCOM classes
Programming experience with Motorola equipment such as X-series, Quantar
repeaters, APX series radios.

If you have contacts in any other areas, places or email lists, please
distribute.

Interested persons need to apply via the TxDOT website ASAP as I am told
they will start interviewing in the next couple of weeks.

BTW, yes, the lucky winner will be working very closely with me.

I can answer some questions by phone.
