Abstract : This is an OSR of the Satellite and Wideband Communications Equipment (AFSC 2ElXl) career ladder. This survey, completed in 1997, is the first since the October 1993 merger of Wideband Communications Equipment (AFSC 304X0) and Satellite Communications Equipment (AFSC 304X6) comprised the newly named AFSC 2ElXl. This survey, containing both active duty (AD) and Air National Guard (ANG) personnel, is intended to update the current data base and to identify any changes that may have taken place since the last surveys in 1987 (AFSC 304X6) and 1988 (AFSC 304X0). Background As described in the AFMAN 36-2108 Specialty Description, dated 31 October 1994, Satellite and Wideband Communications Equipment members install and check operation of wideband and earth terminal communications systems; assemble, program, adjust, and secure system components; review technical instructions, plans, and installation drawings to install wideband and earth terminal equipment and systems; ensure conformance to standard installation practices; measure, adjust, and operationally test equipment and systems; establish, manage configuration, and maintain communications links via satellite transponders; ensure high quality circuits for long distance information relay; employ orbiting communication satellite, line of sight, and tropospheric scatter techniques; and conduct tests to restore and maintain systems.
