My opinions of the world in general
Just thought I should throw in a small correction. Sheep don't do well in the Territory. I don't know of a single property devoted to growing them.
Noted but it is only a joke really if you look further; but thanks for you're comment as all are appreciated.But In Alice School of the Air - From the PastWe have 5000 sheep which are on 8 sheep camps. These are looked after by our ...This is partly due to the personal contact made in the trip to stations, ...www.assoa.nt.edu.au/from_the_past.html - 32k - 25 Jan 2006 - Cached - Similar pages did see that they are farmed there they just don't do so well is allSo how is it at the Alice?
I had a look at the School of the Air site. The sheep mentioned were out at Hermannsburg, to the west, in 1956. 1956 was the beginning of a 10 year drought and probably the end of the sheep!! I first came here in early 1968 and have never seen a sheep despite covering a lot of the Territory by land and air. I see the article mentioning the sheep was taken from the 1956 copy of Airdoctor. If you can get hold of the 1983 copy of Airdoctor you'll find a picture of me!!By the way I'm interested in the origin of "radio op" - I'm VK8KMD but am very rarely on air these days.
Regarding the RFDS I only got it on the web.very interesting to know your call sign yes; my info although I will tell you is on my Blog in a post called an explanation about my Blog.I was a Radio operator in The army that's all; not a big deal really www.assoa.nt.edu.au/from_the_past.htmlI am afraid I don't know how to insert it as a link in a comment only on a blog
