Radar lobby group to meet A GROUP lobbying to build a new radar in Tennant Creek will hold a public meeting next Thursday. Special guest will be Kylie Gracey from the NT Cattlemen s Association who has been working on a funding application to install and opernte the rada r. She will present a draft to the meet ing. Tennant C reek's weather radar was controversially shu1 down in 2015 after a two-year re prieve. Mike ash from 1he Barkly Radar Action G roup (BRAG) says Ba rkly residents would not g ive up on the quest. 'Po litic ians in Canberra can say what they want but out here we all know how vital the weather radar is to us all;' he said. "Our plight is all the more apparent foJ. lowing a heavy wet season. it has created bedlam in the bush and there has been no technology to help. 'For example there's no way of know ing if you re sending remote area workers out into a big stonn where they' ll be cut off by Hood waters o r bogged. " It ' s unsafe and unacceptable in this day and age. .. No wonder we all feel abandoned. " But ifwe 'reno t going to get help from the big boys, we' ll do it by ourselves. "We w ill keep going unt il we raise enough funds to build and operate our own radar." Mike said BRAG has been busy and had scoured the area for the best s ite for the proposed rada r. w e have settled on One Tank Hill, behind the water tank," he said. "Two Tank Hill is loo cluttered and also supports a mobile te lephone tower that might conflict with the radar but O ne Tank Hill is the perfect position for the radar." Mike says he hopes as many people as possible attend the meeting on Thursday 16 February. 3 :30pm at the DPIR Con fcrencc Room. Barkly House, Paterson Street, Tennant Creek.
