Re: Campbell Barracks Swanbourne Antennas

These 152 Squadron Antennae were originally on top of the Hill North of the Firing Range. They were moved down to the barracks as the land they were on was turned into public open space. If you know where to look, you can still see some of the concrete foundations used up the hill.

Re: interesting army 4x4s

Probably a new issue to a NSW or QLD Regiment as they are built in SA in Port Adelaide. When I was working in SA, they used to come passed on flat beds as well as ASLAV past our office. Seen some of the the test configurations they did for ASLAV with different gun mounts with kits form the US, UK an...

Re: Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting

I would imagine it would be call specific. so youd still be able to ring certin numbers (000 or 131 444 ect), and band specific too, so police/fire brigade/ambulance ect. would still be able to use their phones/radios/dispatch computers and AVL wich all use mobile phone inferstucture to operate 100...

Re: Huge VLF Transmission Site at Exmouth

Having been at Pot Shot, the underground areas are even better, tower zero goes down 4 levels, 2 are general access the last two are restricted access, according to the Boeing guy I was talking to, it was due to the high voltages down below. Great facility to have a look around if you get to do some...

Re: Auxillary Police THREAD

After spending time in the UK, I believe, think that they would go down the path of Community Support Officers.

Re: Underpaid...

The police deserve the pay rise along with the other emergency services. The only reason Grant Dorrington whinges is because he guts a percentage of the fines to fund his useless department that hasn't come up with any real new answers to road safety. His let's "lower the speed limit" rant is old ha...
