Please refer back to my first post for site specifications and to No. 92- Logan City for 2018 specifications.  If you wish to check on this (or any) site for yourself, go to my post on how to check for yourself.

Google satellite image 2019:

The screen is right beside a large area of bare dirt- “track and turning area”- and too close to trees and bushes.

    Good that you’re going again Ken.

    Mount Elizabeth BOM station is almost invisible on my Google earth image because of all the scrub around.

    I’m wondering what the percentage of WA BOM stations are failed as against the rest in WA ?
