ALICE SPRINGS Days 2-6
The Alice Sunday paper... Interesting front page story... NO GROG on Sunday?..
Obviously an important part of life in the area! As the ad depicts, They even have a "DUST" sale hehehe
Today, Jeff is taking me up to the TV-Radio towers etc on the MacDonnell Ranges, south of Alice Springs
What a view!! As this is a secured, locked area, I guess I am lucky to have been able to come up here. It was extremely hard to find the "miniscule" Anzac Hill from up here!!
See those "WHITE DOTS"? That is PINE GAP.. and An Aboriginal settlement SW of Alice Springs
Television Transmitters, FM radio transmitters, Microwave data linking, Two way radio repeaters and Mobile phone Cells.
This is the "modern day" hub of communications here in Alice Springs.
Here is "Corroboree" Rock, SE of Alice Springs
Oh, in case you are wondering...Yep the 660 is going just perfect.
