Aeronautical radio beacons in Sweden in the 1950s

Radiofyrar i Sverige på 1950-talet - NDB, 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 Sweden in the mid of the 1950s. All information is outdated and may not be used for navigational purposes.

In this time there were predominantly non-directional radio beacons (NDB). Ranges became less, but the first VORs came up.

The list in incomplete, as most of the military radio beacons (NDB, Eureka/Anita, BABS/Barbro) are missing
