Mildura Flight Service Console
This arrangement was no doubt a hang-over from the communications origin of Flight Service. It was fine when each station only looked after a relatively small Flight Information Area (FIA) surrounding the Station's primary aerodrome, but it did limit the traffic a single operator could handle in more complex airspaces because of the difficulty of identifying traffic conflicts.
Once again unlike ATC, only a single strip for each flight was used. The left-most box contained the aircraft's callsign, type and so on, and boxes to the right were used for each position report en route.
Left - the backup CR-6 HF receiver which was mounted in a drawer in the centre of the console.
