Well SES,
That is just the problem.
We have never seen a picture of the Wassermann M of Zander.

Hi,
Rolf made me aware of updates to the site of Frank Dörenberg:
https://www.nonstopsystems.com/radio/he ... statns.htm
where an update has been made to the list of sources serial 210.
This has enabled me to update my maps on:
http://www.gyges.dk/Flum%20and%20Jagd.htm
links with red font.
And BTW Franks site is worth a visit in it's own right

Hello!

Who can identify radars on the background of the photo.
Photo was made in soviet Libau (1960-1970). The territory of former German aerodrome.
56.542306, 21.010834
The radars look like German, but I am not sure.

Hi,
Two (three ?) Würzburg Riese and one Dora. Very strange and close assembly and I don't have a FuMG Stellung close to that position

1960s -1970s? Then it is for sure not german ww2 equipment. I would guess, this is an original russian P-20 or P-30 installation.

This place is also known as former North aerodrome which was used by Luftwaffe in 41-43 http://www.latvianaviation.com/Aero_Liepaja.html

Soviet army used this positions for deployment of they radars till 1994. But antennas of soviet radars as I know usually had oval form (not circle).
Radars on the photo may be deserted.

Hello

Found an aerialphoto today from Blåvand Lighthouse 1958.

And - have a look at the lower right corner - the WR operationsplatform (house) is still in place on top of the V174 bunker - still 13 years after the liberation 8O

Picture from: http://www5.kb.dk/danmarksetfraluften/# ... 5819217144

Where you can find high resolution aerial fotos from all over Denmark. If you know where to look there is a lot to find :-)

Regards
Kurt
