Special provision for bell on church roof

A modern church in North Queensland had no prior provision for mounting a bell. Special steel support shelves were built on to the angular roof structure, and the crosshead for the 145 kg bell (600 mm mouth diameter) was designed to fit, painted black for nice contrast. An internally mounted electromagnetic chiming hammer sounds the bell to instruction from a "Tempora" microprocessor-based control unit in the church office below, including for automatic daily midday angelus and Sunday mass times.
