The outer marker is of a simple construction. The whole installation fits on a small lot and consists mainly of an equipment shed, some scaffolding pipes, concrete reinforcement maze, and two dipoles. However there is no rust anywhere; this thing is well-maintained!

As with all beacons in the Netherlands, there is an emergency telephone number attached to it.

Two dipoles on a ground grid form a fan-like beam. This is why this type of beacon is also called a `fan marker.'

The installation is directly next to the Bauduinlaan.

Both dipoles create a beam directly through the photographer. The approach path is from the right to the left.
