Welcome to Normanhurst Mixed Probus Club

Next meeting:   Wednesday - 10th August at 12:15pm for 12.45pm start

August Speaker: David Rosenberg

In 1966, Australia and the USA signed a treaty that allowed the establishment of a jointly run satellite tracking station at Pine Gap, near Alice Springs.  For more than 50 years it has operated in a s shroud of secrecy and has been the subject of much public and political controversy.

David Rosenberg was a civilian employed by the US National Security Agency for 23 years, completing the last 18 years to 2008 managing a team in Operations at the facility at Pine Gap.  He will talk about his experiences there and about the significance of the facility for Australia and the USA. David is the author of a book on the subject published in 2018.  He was the technical and creative consultant for the ABC and Netflix TV series based on his book.  He will sell copies of his book after the presentation and he is prepared to sign copies already bought by Club members if they wish.
