G'day Alex,
Yes I remember seeing that rack, Dic Elliott ex Ororall Valley may be 
able to help  PH 4846 1096.
I suspect that it may be Ororall Valley as their primary role was near 
earth orbit satellite tracking, that involved lots of telemetry.
Honeysuckle was part of the MSN (Manned Space Flight Network) network.
In my short time at Honeysuckle (Appollo 13 and 15) in the receiver 
section, the receiver I operated was configured for Telemetry or 
Television as required.
Not dedicated to Telemetry as such.
