The Government has decided to acquire a site (indicated by a cross in the above photo) of about twelve acres, on the Tinakori Hills, Wellington, for a high power wireless station.

The establishment of the station above Wellington is part of the scheme of four high power stations at various parts of New Zealand which Cabinet two months ago decided to carry out.
