    From 1948 until 26Mar1976,... CT's were called 'Communication Technicians'.
    The unclassified 'Job Description' was; "Engaged In The Study of Electromagnetic & Radiowave Propagation" ;):cool:

    On 26 March 1976, the rating 'Communications Technician' was renamed 'Cryptologic Technician'

    Applicants for the CT rates must be U.S. citizens and meet eligibility requirements for continuous access to TOP Secret compartmented information (SCI). Adversely adjudicated drug abuse offenses will not receive waiver consideration. Applicants’ immediate family members, including parents, sibling(s), and spouse, must be U.S. citizens or from a low risk country as defined by Intelligence Community Directive 704. Eligibility for a top-secret clearance is determined by the results of a Single Scope Background Investigation followed by a reinvestigation every five years. Applicants who are former Peace Corps members are not eligible.
