In total there were 15 unauthorized transmissions on aircraft frequencies in the Melbourne area (see article here).  The Australian Communications and Media Authority deployed a Doppler Systems radio direction finder to assist the Australian Federal Police in finding the culprit.  Thankfully he was found and has been arrested (see article here).
