If you are looking for broadcast engineering.... This is it. Lots of radio, TV, STL, studio etc.

Broadcast engineering here in the US is more like nuts and bolts repair than designing micro circuits for cell phones. We all *used to* have to design circuits a lot, mostly just to keep transmitters and studio equipment running and working together.
Trim to fit, paint to match, tune for minimum smoke.

These days, the hardest part of fixing most equipment is locating the shipping box... And for the last couple of weeks, locating the IP, user name & pw.

Don't forget the classic password: ********

Following all of the yammering about hacking on the news our WideOrbit studio workstation passwords were changed to Password1 - with a capital P. That will slow them down.

To the Original Poster - there are many levels of broadcast engineering. It is a diverse discipline with diverse individuals and diverse situations. I can, and have, taken a station from concept at a Rule Making all the way through building the transmitter and studio sites on more than one occasion with all of the necessary regulatory approval (FCC, FAA, local planning and zoning) filings in between. About the only thing I don't do is the actual tower work - stacking the sections and hosting the antennas. Much of it is as much being a mechanic as it is an Electrical Engineer though. I literally spend more time fixing air conditioners and diesel generators than I do fixing transmitters. Add to that the I.T. roles that most of us have.

Radio Engineering is a vague term and it can include control room board operators and kids that set up remote broadcasts at the local Save Mart. I don't think there are many of the latter around here but I'm sure there are a few.
