The Melbourne Wireless page says that it uses AGD66.  This coord system 
was introduced for Australia in 1966 before global systems like GPS.  It 
is now obsolete and has largely been phased out and replaced by GDA94 = 
WGS84 = Google Earth/Maps standard.

There are some scripts for converting between coords.  Might be an idea 
to update the whole thing.
