Notification of Proposed nbnTM Radio Network Base Station Facility
The National Broadband Network (nbn) is a high speed broadband network designed to
reach 100 per cent of Australian premises and provide the communications infrastructure
to help us stop falling behind in an increasingly online world.
nbn is committed to delivering leading edge broadband services to all Australians by
leveraging the three types of technology available – fixed line, fixed wireless and satellite,
depending on location.
As part of the fixed radio (wireless) component of the Network, nbn is proposing to expand
the existing radio network base station at 1601 Korumburra – Wonthaggi Road, Kongwak
Vic 3951 (Lot 2 on PS 638106) to provide high quality wireless broadband services to
customers in the surrounding locality.
The facilities proposed will involve the installation of 5 additional panel antennas
(dimensions approx 750mm height x 300mm width x 115mm depth) on the existing tower.
The installation of associated radio equipment including RRU’s (dimensions approx 50cm
height x 43cm in width x 13cm depth) are also to be added to new and existing panel
antennas along with RAU behind existing dish. Furthermore the current single equipment
shelter will be replaced by 2 new ground based equipment shelters adjacent to the tower.
nbn regards the proposed installation as a Low Impact Facility under the
Telecommunications (Low-Impact Facilities) Determination 1997. In the circumstances, it
does not require planning approval from South Gippsland Shire Council.
Further information on this specific proposal can be obtained by calling
Clinton Northey on (03) 9804 5324
Written submissions can be sent to Level 5, 3 Bowen
Crescent, Melbourne VIC 3004 or via email to clinton.
The closing date for submissions is
January 27, 2017.
For general info on the nbn, call the nbn Solutions
Centre on 1800 881 816, email email@example.com,
or visit our website at www.nbnco.com.au.

Parade at St. George's Anglican Church Hall,
Wonthaggi. Afternoon tea.
Drag racing is for
the birds, says Rod
Rod Churchill was given a choice to either
lose his license or race pigeons.
The Wonthaggi Police were waiting for him
when he finished a drag race along Inverloch
“ I won the race but local policemen, Bill
Studham and Terry Weir, had their lights
flashing at the end of the road, ” said Rod.
“ I played cricket with them and they knew
I had raced pigeons as a boy. I’ve got them to
thank for the fact I didn’t lose my license and
that I was able to pursue something that re-
ally interested me. ”
According to Rod, they issued the ultima-
tum that he either took his need for speed
back into pigeons or they’d put him off the
That was back in 1969, when policing meth-
ods were different, for better or worse but it
led to a lifelong hobby of breeding and racing
pigeons for Rod Churchill.
“When I was a boy living on a farm in Kil-
cunda my Mum’s brother gave my brother
and I two pigeons, ” he explains.
“We put a box on the outside of the milking
shed. Then we got a few more and we used to
put them on the rail in Kilcunda. We knew the
stationmaster so we were able to put a basket
of pigeons on the train.
When they got to Wonthaggi or Nyora they
would let them go. They brought the basket
back to us and the pigeons flew home. ”
Rod now has 50 pairs of stock birds and
150 young ones.
Last year, one pair bred him a pigeon that
won him $6500.
Breeding happens from September through
to January or February. He is starting to train
the young ones now. When he whistles they
come in for a feed.
He starts by taking them 5kms away and let-
ting them fly home, then 20kms and 50kms.
“We race on Saturdays and Sundays start-
ing at 100 miles then work up to 700 miles, ”
“They all get taken by truck to the same
place then get released. They then fly home.
GPS is used from the race point to your
home. What’s called a velocity is then calcu-
lated. You can win by just decimals or by a lot
more,” he explains.
In September there is some serious money
to be won for a 400 miles race. The prize is
$100,000 . Rod is hoping to win that one.
