Makes me wonder, Mal. If the xmtrs are in the VK9C or VK9X area the  bearings 
would be right on for the times I have heard it.

Here is more info than you want or,  probably, need to know. This is 100% 
directly from the Australian Dept of  Defense.
The Department of Defense is at present managing the Jindalee  
Over-The-Horizon Radar Network (JORN) Project, which will install a network of  
transmitters and receivers to provide a comprehensive and cost effective  
surveillance of the northern and western approaches of Australia. The ability  
illuminate and identify a desired target is very much dependent on the  
refractive characteristics of the ionospheric layers. Coupled with  the need to 
track multiple aircraft and ship targets against unwanted  reflections from 
waves and ground objects, this makes the operation of the  radar network 
extremely complex. 
In order to realise the full potential of the technology  embodied within the 
radar system, the Department of Defence is keen to  incorporate the 
experience and higher level knowledge of the research  scientists of the 
Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) into the  control of JORN. 
A team of BHP knowledge engineers worked closely with DSTO  scientists and 
software engineers. A software application has been developed  to capture and 
disseminate the radar tasking knowledge from the scientists.  The application 
has demonstrated that the technology, if successfully  deployed, could have a 
major impact on the efficacy of JORN  facilities. 
This paper outlines the background and the development of the  Intelligent 
Radar Tasking Concept Evaluator.
