REMOTE ELECTRICAL TILT
Some of the wireless carriers make use of a Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) device to allow for the adjustment of the antenna
down tilt without the need for a tower climb crew.  Those carriers that use this type of system are now requiring the installation
crew to set the prescribed tilts at the end of there installation of the antenna systems.  This work requires the use of a piece of
equipment referred to as a Remote Control Protocol Adapter along with the antenna manufacturers' software installed to a
laptop computer.  The software provides communications with the RET system to reset the down tilt.  This software also
allows for the settings to be recorded and included in a report for the close out package that the contractor will submit at the
completion of the work.
