Super-Computer "Bugs Every Phone
Conversation in Australia"
Radio 2GB stated last night that
the super-secret, high security building
in Herbert Street in the Sydney city
suburb of St Leonards houses the largest
computer in Australia, a computer many
times larger than the combined computers
of TELECOM and
ATO, the Australian
Tax Office; it appears the Herbert St
computers are used to tape
conversation that occurs in Australia.
For many years this building, installed
by the Americans, with its extremely high
security, including guards with automatic
weapons and listening devices covering the
outside street in all directions for 100
meters, has been the subject of much
speculation by journalists.
Its real purpose was revealed on Radio
2GB on April 16  by a man
who helped install the computer
Why they are
taping and digitising every telephone
in Australia, and what they intend to
do with the information gained, were
facts not known by the caller.
It was suggested that Telecom may even
be able to use the telephones in our homes
as 'listening devices'.
