Historical radio beacons in Yugoslavia in the 1950s

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

The following list contains the aeronautical radio beacons that were active in Yugoslavia in the mid of the 1950s. The list is likely to be incomplete, as there is no information on military radio beacons. All information is outdated and may not be used for navigational purposes.

At this time predominantly Non-Directional Beacons (NDB) were used. At Belgrade-Zemun airport, however, there was already a VOR in operation.
