H&E began with a focus on broadcast station coverage — obtaining, predicting, measuring, and improving signal coverage — and has developed a number of fields of specific expertise, including frequency allocation, transmitting site selection, and optimized antenna design.
With the advent of cellular telephone service in the 1980s, H&E responded to client needs with a growing focus on environmental compliance (RF exposure and acoustic noise) for wireless telecommunications base stations — calculations for proposed facilities and measurements for existing facilities, along with mitigation of conditions, where appropriate. Clients include wireless carriers, cities and counties, and private landlords.
