Close-up of the VOR/DME. It is of the standard construction used for most VOR/DMEs in the Netherlands, although there seems to be little wood involved here. We don't know which antenna is the DME, the left small one or the center large one. We assume it is the center one, as MAS has the same type of antenna on top of the cilinder. MAS+HSD have a totally different construction of the VOR compared to AMS+SPL+SPY+PAM. This is due to the difference between traditional and Doppler VOR. The latter is a lot larger but more reliable and more accurate at much greater expense.
