old P.M.G Repeater hutts, Trunk and Coax network

Post by Timon » Sun Mar 10, 2013 6:43 pm

Require more information on the old abandoned/disused pmg signal hutts you see around through out Australia, they were once used for the old Coax System across Australia, i have seen a few old concrete pmg hutt things around Rural Australia with the old PMG signs still on them, it has me curious how many of these still exist and how much of the old cabling is still linking these old pmg hutts..
