Isolation Gone Forever - Telecom Australia 1985 (Telstra)

Post by vk6hgr »

Fascinating history of the replacement of the VJY HF radphone system in the Daly River region in the NT.
Documentary made by Telecom Australia (Telstra) in 1985 about the introduction of Automatic Telephone Services to the Daly River Region of the Northern Territory - Australia. Telecom Australia Developed Digital Radio Concentrator System was the Second of many systems installed around Australia as part of the Rural and Remote Areas Project (RRAP). The System Head end was located at the Katherine Exchange, and was later extended to Port Keats. The DRCS was later replaced by the High Capacity Radio Concentrator System (HCRCS).
