Hamelin Pool Telegraph Station

In a sea of white shell grit the old telegraph station at Hamelin Pool in Western Australia is where in 1964 a Mrs O’Donohue tirelessly transmitted morse code for NASA during the first Gemini launch. Lightning had taken out the Gascoyne Junction trunk line. She was given an award by NASA for her four hours of exceptional work.
