A radio operator refers to a person who is responsible for the operations of a radio system. The profession of radio operator has become largely obsolete with the automation of radio-based tasks in recent decades.[1] Nevertheless, radio operators are still employed in maritime [2]and aviation fields.[3] In most cases radio transmission is now only one of several tasks of a radio operator.[4][5] In the United States, the title of Certified Radio Operator is granted to those who pass a test issued by the Society of Broadcast Engineers.
