Geography Papa Hotel lives just off a rural road in the middle of meadows and agricultural land, East of Sint-Oedenrode, the Oude Lieshoutsedijk. It is only separated from the road by a row of trees and very easily accessible.
Procedures Associated to the approach of Eindhoven Airport runway 22.
Remarks Probably as one of the first of a whole list of beacons to be decommissioned, PH was officially withdrawn from service in september 2003. With the advent of GPS navigation and ILS/DME approaches, both locators and markers are not required any longer.
