Stories of the Australian Coastal Radio Service


Fell through the roof!

This is a true story! At the Sydneyradio receiving station, La Perouse one day during a normal shift, with operators busy at their morse keys. The HF bays were kept busy with fairly long QRY lists.

Suddenly there was a loud crash and a person fell through the roof and landed right next to the 12mhz work position!

One of the technicians had been working up in the loft and had missed his footing and had fallen between the beams!
