Brief description The Blackfellows Cave (BFCV) HF ocean radar site (37.940 S 140.457 E) is one of two HF ocean radars covering the Bonney Coast, South Australia. The other HF ocean radar station is at Nora Creina. The HF ocean radar coverage is from the coast to beyond the edge of the continental shelf. The BFCV HF ocean radar is a SeaSonde crossed-loop direction finding array. This radar operates at a frequency of 5.211 MHz, with a bandwidth of 50 KHz, a maximum range of 200 Km and a range resolution of 3 Km. The antenna bearing is 257 deg true east of north (approximately west by south-west). Within the HF radar coverage area surface current radials are measured. This station was decommissioned in March 2017.
