Thanks for the reply's

The unit of the Erika is the 12./Luftgau Nachrichten Regiment Holland this was under the command of Fluko Breda,
the only conclusion I could made is that there was a Luftwaffe unit in the Stp. Waffenschmied/ naval radar post Monika
with a unknown radar in 1942 .

The name Erica or Erika is used by every local citizen in that area .

I'm looking at some maps titled "Funk-Navigationsanlagen" (stand 1944) by OKL Generalnachrichtenführer 1. Abt II. Copied from BaMa (not mine to share though, so no photo).

The three maps (Reichsgebiet, Westraum and Ostraum) shows the locations of the following types of installations:
* Sonne
* Komet
* Bernhard
* Erika
* Egon
* Egon (kampf)
* Baldur
* Truhe
* Hermine
* Knickebein
* Zyklop
* Y
* Y (kampf)
* Peildorf
* Flugsicherungsstelle
* Flugsicherungszentrale

I can only see two "Erika"-installations:
* West of Wien, Austria.
* In the area of Bolougne-sur-Mer, France.

Thanks Natter

The Erika station at Boulogne sur Mer is a jamming station.

Hi!

Sorry, but the "Hyperbelfächer-Drehfunkfeuer Erika" itself was not for jamming, but a navigational aid.

Erika 1 - Boulogne-F (east of Équihen-Plage - west of D 119)
Erika 2 - Saint-Pierre-Église-F (east of the city - north of D 901)
Erika 3 - Irschenberg-D (north of the village - nothing left)
Erika 4 - Flachberg-A (north of the village - nothing left)

There were also two "experimental Erika" at Dabendorf-D and Neustrelitz-D for testing.

...but this ones were not the "radar" you are searching for...

Best wishes
Rolf

Thanks for the correction Rolf

I mixed up the Erika and Breslau.
