Following the recent COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria, and the closure of the border into SA, the Princess Highway border check-point east of Mount Gambier was re-activated.
Unfortunately, the check-point location has little or no mobile phone or internet coverage. SA Police again requested assistance from SERG to establish an emergency antenna to enable data comms for the Border Permit checks.
With thanks to Andrew VK5MAS, who coordinated the activity, he soon had the essential comms up and running, deploying the SERG comms trailer with its pump-up mast.
This will remain in position until the SA Police radio techs arrive with their own infrastructure.
