Anyone here old enough to remember Prime minister Paul Keatings idea of an over the horizon radar system back in the early '90's ?

I heard that was supposed to be some long distance secret weapon program to protect Australia from advancing enemies from the north under the guise of a Radar System.....

never heard too much about it afterwards......anyone?

It had nothing at all to do with Keating... en.wikipedia.org...


The second phase, Project Jindalee, aimed at proving the feasibility and costing of OTHR. This second phase was carried out by the Radar Division, (later, the High Frequency Radar Division), of the Defence Science and Technology Organisation. Project Jindalee came into being during the period 1972-1974 and was divided into three stages.

Pretty sure it's just a fake news report from an independent news group www.independentaustralia.net talking about a abc 7.30 report story that claims 3 Indo Navy ships were spotted entering AU waters off the coast near Darwin.

Don't take much stock in it, but thought I'd ask around here to make sure it is a fake story.

Thanks for the heads up on what's happening up those parts..

boat people go home your not wanted, here we will help you and escort you back safely to your territorial waters.
How can that be wrong?, in fact its quite civil as Im sure some other countries in world; would choose to treat them as invaders and blow them out of the water.

Rumour has it the Collins Class sub seen entering the docks in Darwin has slipped out over night.

Nothing to report from last night, was quiet as a church mouse up on the boarder, did see at least 5 asylum seeker vessels heading our way though.

Customs vessels already tracking and waiting for them
