Broadcasts are usually transmitted directly from the station; however, engineers are capable of transmitting signals on location from specially designed, mobile equipment. The specific tasks of the broadcast engineer depend on the size of the television or radio station. In small stations, engineers have a wide variety of responsibilities. Larger stations are able to hire a greater number of engineers and delegate specific responsibilities to each engineer. In small and large stations, however, engineers are responsible for the operation, installation, and repair of the equipment.
