Jeroen wonders why this hut is made of badly maintained wooden plates. Most other beacon huts are at least made of stone or metal.

You can also see the power box. This must be the most basic beacon site: just pull a power cable to somebodies back yard, put up a low wooden fence, and we're done!

The wood is clearly visible. The beacon is in a corner, two sides fenced off by water. As always, the antenna grid is lined up exactly with the approach path (right to left here) and ignores the local geographical features.
You can now clearly see the thick (15 cm) door, which is common to all beacons (NDBs and markers). We wonder whether this door actually contains all electronics and the huts are just historical.

The construction of the antenna is standard. Two dipoles on a ground mesh.
