Position

Frequency 75 MHz
Type ILS Outer Marker
Geography On private property behind a yacht harbour called Jachthaven WSV Ploegensluis. The road is Jaagpad, and the place De Kwakel. You can also spot the marker from the other side of the Amstel-Drecht canal, but you need to know where to look.
Procedures This beacon is used to mark a specific place on the ILS approach to runway 36R, so that the pilot can cross-check the altitude and can start a stop watch to time the distance to the decision point for a missed approach.
Remarks On February 19, 2004, this marker beacon was decommissioned because the ILS for runway 36R has been equipped with a DME transponder.
