NSW L of C was located at Boronia Park in New South Wales.

28 December 1942, a second 100 watt rack-mounted transmitter has been installed at Boronia Park to act as control for the Tamworth/Hay group.

8 March 1943, W/T links from Boronia to Bathurst/ Dubbo/ New Lamberton (near Newcastle)/ Tamworth and Hay (WS109) temporarily closed for upgrading, and some other links installed with land-line Morse. 

25 May 1943, 41 Heavy Wireless, under the command of Captain Richard Thomas and headquartered at NSW L of C Signals Boronia Park, opened a WT channel at Hay at 1335 hours, to operate daily 1300/1700 and 1800/2200, and equipped with WS133 and Kingsley AR7 receivers. They worked shifts to maintain a 24 hour WT link with Boronia Park. They were located adjacent Camps 7 and 8 of the Hay Prisoner of War Camp.

On 3 July 1943, NSW L of C Signals changed name to 12 Aust  L of C Signals.
