Possum.

I have no fucking idea. Your coordinates go to a commercial district near Caloocan City, Philippines. Looks like a bunch of low-rise buildings.

No, tinfoil is exactly what they expect you to use. That facility is designed to track tinfoil across the world. This is the first known case where a legitimate titanium helmet is required.

when you're looking at stuff on google earth often there are these little icons nearby that if you click on them they tell you what it is and give you pictures... That's how I got the above.

I don't know... I tried entering it without the - on the front figuring it was a copy and paste error... but that take you to the ocean off China.

How did you enter it? and where? (as in Google maps online or Google Earth on your computer)

It's not recognizing the minus sign in the coordinates so it's showing the location in the Northern Hemisphere?

Are you using google earth or google maps? I used earth and it worked fine.

Probably a syntax issue.

Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt


Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt is located on the North West coast of Australia, 6 km north of Exmouth, Western Australia. This town was built to service the station.

The station was commissioned on September 16, 1967. On September 20, 1968, the station was officially renamed to U.S. Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt in memory of the late Harold Holt, former Prime Minister of Australia, who died three months after the station was commissioned.

The station provides very low frequency (VLF) radio transmission to United States Navy and Royal Australian Navy ships and submarines in the western Pacific Ocean and eastern Indian Ocean. It is with a transmission power of 1000 kilowatts the most powerful transmission station on the Southern hemisphere. The station is also suspected of being a part of the US signals intelligence and analysis network ECHELON.

The station features thirteen tall radio towers. The tallest tower is called Tower Zero and is 387 metres tall, making it (at the time it was built) the tallest man-made structure in the Southern Hemisphere. Six towers are evenly placed in a circle around Tower Zero. The other six towers are evenly placed in a larger circle around Tower Zero. All these towers are 364 metres tall.

During July 2002, the Australian Navy handed over operation of the station to the Defence Materiel Organisation.

The base is run under contract by Boeing Australia, Ltd.


there you go.
