Help me discover the path to a job working on the clusters of equipment that sit on top of mountains.

The type of sites im referring to are places like this
, and this
I realize that lots of different types of equipment is up there, could be some radio stuff, some tv, air traffic nav aids, radar, weather equipment, etc..
Im basically looking for someone who has worked on sites like this to find out more about it and what I can do to put myself there. Whats the coolest job up there? What companies should I be looking at? Are there apprenticeship programs to check out? Most importantly, what degree would best suit me?
I have experience in ground/air radio and electronics maintenance from my military days and definitely enjoyed the field, ive just always looked at those sites way up there and thought they were cool. I figure there must be a good handful of jobs needed to build and support these sites but I never hear anything about them.
