NDB Hoek van Holland Lt. *HH :


the 3 maritime radiobeacons IJmuiden *YM, Hoek van Holland *HH, and Eierland *ER formed a network on their working frequency, where each of the stations was transmitting the callsign and a dash for 1 minute each, giving the ship's radio operator good bearings to several fixed points in short time. A special item of this network was the use of a defined pitch of the dash: here it was 1052 Hz to differentiate from other signals. With the use of GPS (and DGPS) signals this service became obsolete.
