Evnn though I haven't heard any news about this facility I hope BillyBob will tell us what it is. Though it was easy to find.

But the facility is Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt at Exmouth WA.

Well done Sladys ... the news is, the Australian government is about to lease the place to the US to set up a tracking station for monitoring space junk.

Here's the link.
