Did you know that there was a very large Australian Airforce HF radio communications facility at Werribee, west of Melbourne, during the 1940s?
It is now long gone, but it had 31 rhombic antennas, connected to 52 AR7 rack-mounted receivers.
I don't know the actual location, but I suspect it was in the area which became the suburb of Hoppers Crossing many years later.
I used to go rabbit shooting with a .22 in that part of the country in the late 1940s, but I can't recall any sign of the facility then. In those years, the land was mainly
Scotch Thistles and Lava Plains!
Here are some photos taken in 1944, from the Australian War Memorial archives of the station. I have other images, if anyone's interested.
