As usual people always seem to get this stuff wrong. The big golf ball domes you see are just protective covers for the satellite dish its self. It's
not a radar, just a big dish just the same as a foxtel one on your roof.
The reason they use them is that the satellites receivers they use are very sensitive and the more dust and crap that gets on them the less sensitive
Oh yeah, I'm in the army and MPs (military police) do not guard instillation sites of any kind. They are a military police and deal with military
matters, physical security is usually done by civilian contracts (chubb etc) or by the australian protective service.
The base at rocky is just a training ground, they do everything from patrolling to dropping bombs on the islands. Nothing spooky about it.
