Airways Museum Virtual Tour - Daly Waters Aeradio Diorama
Daly Waters

This diorama re-creates the Aeradio station at Daly Waters c.1940. There was a need at this time to expand the Aeradio network through central and western Australia to support the operations of Guinea Airways and MacRobertson Miller Airlines (MMA), respectively. However, due to the outbreak of war in Europe, time, materials and equipment were in short supply.

Therefore, DCA established these stations wherever possible in existing accommodation, often primitive, using whatever equipment was to hand. Roll your cursor over the image above to identify the radio equipment. Both the AS9 and C7000 receivers were designed as aircraft receivers but were commonly used for ground stations at this time.
