So there is a SIPO near Ballina.   And some OZPO's.   Well, here in the
Riverland we are currently watching PC's (or MMC's if you learnt your birds
some time ago).  We also suffer WTE's, MF, RP's with occasional RLW's,
SBP's,  BEM's and those ever present WWC's and AB's.  But most of all we
plenty of G's.
It keeps us interested.
