Radio beacons in Denmark the 1950s

Radiofyr stationer i Danmark i 1950'erne - NDB, Range, ILS

For historical information only, do not use for navigation or aviation purposes!

The following list contains the aeronautical radio beacons that were active in Denmark in the mid of the 1950s. All information is outdated and may not be used for navigational purposes.

At this time there were mainly non-directional beacons (NDB). The identification of most en-route beacons consisted of three letters and began with an O. Other radio beacons, especially those for the approach to airfields, had two letters, mostly according to the name of the airfield.

Copenhagen Kastrup airport was equipped with the Instrument Landing System (ILS).
