That is what I got when the First Class Phone was not needed any more and the First and Second Class was changed over to the GROL.
I agree , I think many companies were started up or started handing out someThe first thing you would have discovered is that TV used a pair of transmitters, in 1972. That was the year that I tested out of the three year, depot level school for broadcast engineering. It was the
kind of certification just to make money. Where I worked I had to get certified every year for something about radiation. Then came the refregeration and ozone scare, certified to operate a stud gun, operate some

worth anything), don't recall what all else. Retired about the time the six
sigma came out with all the stupid belts. I even thought the First Phone was a joke when I took it in 1972. I had studied some on a 2 nd class book and at the time it cost one dollar more to take the First, so I signed up for that and passed everything the first day. Never did see a TV transmitter and would not know what to do if I had.

the FCC test, until the year before I left the service. I worked at
three TV stations, in all. One AFRTS Army station, and two commercial
UHF stations without a First Phone.

I think the NABER certification disappeared from usage more than twenty years ago. I looked to see if I could recertify it 20 years ago and it was nowhere to be found. I Had my NARTE CET and GROL licenses and wanted to beef up my resume with the NABER license. No Joy!

I was wondering if someone could tell me what the NABER Certification isand
just how recognized it is. I have a CET (ETA), and FCC GROL license
currently. An associate at work (USAF) told me that the FCC license
is no longer recognized by industry and that employers (motorola, att,
nt, etc) now want you to have the NABER Certification. He claimed the
FCC was more of a operating license then maintence.
The way I understand it, FCC is both operating and maintence of certain
equiptment. I thought employers wanted EITHER the naber or fcc, but
had never heard a firm wanting just the naber.
Any information about the NABER Certification would be appreciated.
The NABER was an attempt to replace the FCC First class Radio-ttelephone license in the last century. The FCC loosly says that it's up to the station's owner to establish the technition's technical competance. The NABER is one way to show that. The
