Geography On a hilltop directly next to the Gulperberg camping ground. The nearest caravan is less than twenty meters away and the swimming pool not much more. Observing this beacon transmitting radio waves is possible from close quarters while enjoying a drink on the terrace of the main camping building.
Remarks In Summer 2009, GUL got a brand-new transmitter made by Nautel (thanks to Berry van de Crommert for the info).
