Auto Alarm Keyer - Operator Console # 1, Melbourne Coastal Radio Station, 1990-2002 Object Reg. No: HT 5638 5

Auto Alarm Keyer manufactured by Centre Industries and used in conjunction with Main Operator Console.

This equipment 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.
Rectangular box shaped object with and on/off switch and control buttons on the off-white coloured front panel and connector ports on the rear panel. The box probably fitted into a cavity within the main console and exposed only the two end panels (where the controls or connectors are located).
