Position

Frequency 75 MHz
Type ILS Outer Marker
Geography On one of the tennis courts of tennis club Keerweide in Geleen, 4 nm from the threshold of runway 22. Road name Riddervosstraat, a rather narrow passage that still is accessible by car leads to less than 15 meters from the beacon, which is behind a hedge.
Procedures This beacon is used to mark a specific place on the ILS approach to runway 22, 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 In November 27, 2003, this marker beacon was decommissioned as the ILS approach to Beek runway 22 had been equipped with a DME transponder on the glideslope antenna.
