Geography Beautifully on a hilltop in the middle of grain and potato fields, North of Brunssum in Limburg, near the German border. The dirt road leading up to the beacon officially is closed for through traffic.
Remarks MAS shares its construction only with HSD, but adds a DME antenna.
The climb path of Geilenkirchen AB across the border lies just South of MAS. Planes doing right-hand circuits from Geilenkirchen circle the beacon site.
