Abstract

During the 1950s Australia was one of the world's foremost astronomical nations owing primarily to the work of the dynamic radio astronomy group within the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation's Division of Radiophysics. Most of the observations were made at the network of field stations maintained by the Division in or near Sydney, and one of these field stations was Murraybank in the north-western suburbs of Sydney.

This paper describes the research activities and equipment used at Murraybank for the investigation of neutral hydrogen emission from our Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds.
