Layout - Telstra, Gantries & Transmit Farm, Melbourne Coastal Radio Station, 1995 Reg. No: HT 5573
- Hand drawn plans for both the Balun Gantry, Feeder Gantry and Transmit Farm.
This document was collected from the Melbourne Coastal Radio Station after it was closed in July 2002. In addition to communications equipment and documentation, items in general office use were collected in order to represent as far as possible the working environment at the time of closure.
- The layout comprises two pieces of A4 paper that have been glued together to form a double sided sheet. One side details the 'Transmit Farm General layout' the other the Balum and Feeder gantires. The Farm layout is a black and white photocopy whilst the opposing side (gantries) is a copy that has been subsequently highlighted in yellow and orange fluorescent markers and pencil. There is a M.C.S date stamp on the side documenting the Farm plan.
