Mr Hetherton said Cooby's performances and innovative results were often kept secret in trying to get ahead of the Soviet Soviet raid competition.
"It was the time of the Cold War," he said.
"On the scientific side of the side and the development of space aircraft, we were still competing with the Russians."
At the time, Australia had the largest number of outside stations in the United States and was an integral part of NASA gold exploration for space.
The station also states that this is the first to broadcast a television signal from overseas from Australia, and Awareness of a group of young people to talk to Toowoomba.
