What does this mast do?

By far_northact - 10 September 2013 20

mast

This antenna/transmitter was installed during the night (literally) over the weekend on the 9th hole of the Gold Creek Golf Course.

Calls to the club manager received the helpful advice that he doesnt know anything about it(!)

Anyone know what it is?

What’s Your opinion?

I also noticed this and contacted the owners who told me it was none of my concern and told to get off private property.I am concerned by the constant noise it makes throughout the night.

ialso beleive it was erected illegally according to act land and planning.;

Its emission of subsonic audio waves will probably give you cancer, too.

Remote weather station or sprinkler controller. Speak to the guys in the greenkeepers shed.

It’s a transmittor. Sends communication signals to the Alien spacecraft over Pearce.

Quiet, Quorg! if we make the same ‘joke’ too many times, even the ignorant humans may begin to suspect the Truth.

Last ditch attempt at public art from our Government?

My guess (educated, but still a guess) is that it’s one end of a SCADA data link used for some sort of device monitoring and control. If you look down the path of the reflector you’ll probably see the other end somewhere off in the not too far distance.

Interesting that the club manager didn’t know what was going on.

WiFi hotspot? Can’t really see the far antenna so can’t be sure.

Looks like a repeater to me.
