60 seconds with Radiocoms' Andy Johnson

Andy Johnson, senior project manager at Radiocoms, discusses his career in the two-way radio industry

How do you spend most of your time at work?

The great thing about Radiocoms is the variety, in terms of both clients and technology. Most of my time is spent analysing requirements and working towards designing a solution.

What’s the one gadget that you can’t live without?

My satnav. I travel a great deal.

Describe your most unforgettable project.

Redesigning a trunked radio and microwave network in West Africa. This involved overcoming the challenges of logistics and resources in order to meet tight deadlines and mitigate the collapse of an existing supplier of shared infrastructure. My employer was at risk of losing transmission sites.

What’s the most unusual thing you’ve seen while working in the radio sector?

The freak lightning and other weather during the wet season in West Africa. While it was incredibly impressive to see the consequences of such frequent electrical storms, they presented several technical challenges.

What advice would you give to a young radio engineer who’s starting their first job in the industry?
