The Importance of Electronics Technicians to Astronomy

Question: Are there careers for electronics technicians in the field of radio astronomy?  I’m referring to those with 2-year associates degrees in electronics.  I know there’s a lot of electronics involved in radio telescopes.  Someone has to be maintaining that stuff!  – Daniel

Answer: Absolutely!  Electronics are a large part of the instrument development throughout astronomy, not just radio astronomy.
