Hi again, no it is not Pine Gap, that installation is plainly visible in Google Earth pics.
I think that if I sent the co-ordinates to lilwolf and they were then posted by another person, I would still be seen as the original source of the
information, again ending me up # creek in a barbed wire canoe with no paddle, no comeback, no protection.
I am also sure that if I did that, my ability to enter some areas that I access for various reasons, would be reviewed. No way, too much like cutting
off my nose to spite my face.
But, I am sure I can say this without getting into any strife.
After a very friendly encounter with the Australian Security Services, who pounced on me after being in the wrong place in outback Australia, while
searching for crystal specimens, mineral specimens and meteorites, which is why I go out there, I had all of my photographic equipment confiscated. It
was later returned to me via the post with a letter stating that 'No images of the 'installation' were found and that no charges will be laid'.
The Australian Security Services are charged with protecting the boundaries of US installations in this country and do a bloody good job. They were
most friendly and actually interested in what I was searching for. They also appeared out of nowhere, the first I knew of their presence, was the
sound of wheels on gravel behind me. I was on a flat desert plain with good visiblity in all directions. It was as if they popped out of a hole in the
ground. After they encountered me, they escorted me back to a guard house, where I made my statements and they took my cameras. At the location where
they 'nabbed' me I was in view of the 'installation'. In Australia there are very large 'Prohibited Areas' and believe me, they are
'Prohibited', even if you are just looking for rocks.
I won't give up the locale because some nutter would no doubt send it straight off to Al-Q or some bunch of fruitcakes.
I just thought it was interesting to know that images on Google Earth don't always show what is there, but I guess it is only me that actually knows
Sorry to the list for creating conjecture and like it was said, peeving some of you off.
