Hi %%First Name%%,
Welcome to the September 2018 edition of the eEngineering.com Newsletter. Our newsletter is designed to provide our customers with the latest two-way radio, wireless communications, and security solutions news. Trouble viewing the newsletter, see it here.
Meet Chris Peterson, a field service technician for our Des Moines Branch. Chris has been with the company almost 2 years and first started with us as an intern when he was in college.

We asked the following questions:

What are all of the different “hats” you’ve worn while at Electronic Engineering?

Chris: Whenever there is a radio challenge with a customer’s system, I troubleshoot their issues and come up with a fix. I enjoy the variety my job provides. One day I am working on updating radio systems for Iowa State Patrol cars and the next I’m helping install a seven simulcast site system in Nebraska. In between I could be on a microwave point-to-point system project or helping chart a solution for increased in-building cell or radio coverage.

How did you find Electronic Engineering?

Chris: While I was studying for my associate’s degree, we heard from senior leadership at Electronic Engineering. I decided to apply for an internship to see what the job would be like while I continued my studies. I’ve always liked to work with my hands and when I realized I could combine my interest in electronics and networking with a hands-on profession at EE, I knew it would be a good fit.

What is one thing that readers and friends might be surprised to know about you?

Chris: I enjoy public speaking and have been pulled into a few different ad campaigns both in my time in the Air Force and while I was studying at Des Moines Area Community College. I worked in a video production studio for many years. I’ve also spoken at college graduation.

Editor’s note: You can see Chris’ commercial here!

What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?

Chris: I have quite a few hobbies that keep me busy. I have a woodworking shop where I make all sorts of furniture, decorations, pens, and other things. I also have been into playing music since I was a teenager. I started on piano and moved to percussion, guitar, and bass. I’m also big into board gaming with family and friends.

Chris is a born and raised Iowan and served 10 years in the United States Air Force. Originally from Nevada, Iowa, Chris currently lives with his brother, his sister-in-law and their daughter. They have a dog and cats – it’s a pretty full household!

A company by the name of “Federal Licensing, Inc.” recently unleashed a new scheme to persuade Federal Communications Commission (FCC) licensees to pay them to file applications. The first sentence in their latest solicitation letter starts with “We received a request for modification to your two-way radio license Call Sign [KAAA123],” and then asks the recipient to “indicate all Modifications below & return in the enclosed envelope.” These scams are meant to have the licensee pay for or pay more for services that come standard with FCC licensing.

A copy of this latest solicitation can be viewed on EWA’s website for reference purposes.

Contact Electronic Engineering if you have any questions regarding your FCC license.
