"I love the variety that my daily work brings with it. Climbing the broadcast mast is real teamwork every time," explains the 36-year-old.
Both ISS test engineers and ISS service technicians in the field of broadcast have their sights set high: from the systematic inspection of antenna masts for structural defects to interference suppression and repair work. "At ISS, I have the freedom to work and make decisions independently. Whether on the ground or 80 metres in the air, I enjoy taking on new challenges in order to develop myself further.”
In Germany there are about 32,000 broadcast sites owned by Deutsche Funkturm, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom. Working closely together, ISS test engineers and service technicians ensure that these broadcast sites are well-functioning and maintained – an increasingly essential task during the COVID-19 crisis.
"With our work, we are helping to ensure that many people in Germany can continue their work despite the corona pandemic. In pandemic times, personal exchange from a distance is particularly important, whether privately or professionally. I am proud to ensure with my daily work that we remain networked and connected even in this extraordinary situation".
