The sky’s the limit for this tower technician position with FDH Infrastructure Services. On this new episode of the FDH JobCast, we sit down with Jerry Folk, Director of Broadcast Operations and Don Doty, Business Development Manager, to discuss the open role of Tower Technician II, III, and Tower Crew Lead, all essential pieces to the larger tower operation and inspection puzzle. These positions will help maintain and construct broadcast towers, operate and interpret various technical instruments and documents, and most importantly, have a penchant for safety and instinct as they climb heights up to 2,000 feet.
While most people will never experience what it’s like to scale a sky-high communications tower, professionals in this industry know the unique role this position fills.
“Being up in the air… it’s exhilarating,” Folk said. “Once you’ve been aloft, just there with a light wind and a beautiful blue sky day, there’s nothing better. It’s very comfortable, almost calming, once you get used to where you’re working.”
Folk and Doty shared insight into the company’s culture around the water cooler, so to speak, and answered one of our signature questions — If FDH was a band, what band would it be — with a classic rock band favorite and a good pun for the job.
“At the end of the day, you’re spent physically and mentally because of your situational awareness, knowing that every step is important where you take,” Doty said. “But when you get down at the end of the day, you’ve got a sense of accomplishment and you feel it.”
