The crest of MPA Marine Peil Abteilung Bretagne based on the same ideas as the one of MPHS Brügge.

Hi!

Croix d'Hins was no MPHS, but a longwave-transmitting-post of Kriegsmarine.


Several years ago, I found the story of Mr. Schröder, who became a SIGINT-soldier
in Kriegsmarine.
http://schroeder-eversburg.de/memoiren.html (Please see part 4 and 5, written
in German)

In part 5, he was send to MPHS Bordeaux. He wrote, the MPHS was in (/or near?)
Saint André de Cubsac, near Bordeaux. The soldiers were housed in a "chateau
with a park". (Maybe similar to MPHS Bayeux, where the soldiers lived in a chateau,
but the receiving-post was several 100 meters away.)

I searched geoportail.gouv.fr / remonterletemps.ign.fr again and found a DF-post
north of Ambarès-et-Lagrave, near Saint André de Cubsac.

The two DFs I found, seems to be a adapted NVK-LWH IV/38 (also called "Goldfink")
with 8 foundations in a circle with a base of 20 m and a small 8-mast-U-Adcock with
a base of 8 m.
Both antennas were also used at MPHS Hjorring (DK).

Best wishes
Rolf

MPHS Den Helder

Post by nordfriese » 08 Apr 2021 17:59

Hi!

At NCAP are some nice air pictures of MPHS Den Helder.

At a picture from 28 May 1944, I notices four sets of star-shaped
earthing ribbons. The eastern "stars" were connected with each
other by a cable-ditch (?) and at the middle of the cable-ditch
another cable-ditch was digged direction MPHS-building.
https://ncap.org.uk/frame/24-1-6-50-78

The book "Die deutschen Funkpeil- und Horch-Verfahren bis 1945"
by Fritz Trenkle says, the Nachrichtenversuchskommando (NVK) of
the Kriesmarine developed (together with Telefunken) the
"Grenzwellen-Langdraht-Sektorpeilanlage 'Guben'" for 1,5 to
3,0 MHz.

The system were two parallel long-wire-antennas, 900 m long, with
a distance of 150 m, which fits with the earthing ribbon stars.

After Trenkle, just two systems exsisted, one with MPA Flandern at
Bruges and on with MPHS Den Helder.

Best wishes and stay healthy
Rolf

Great Rolf, well done! I hope you will be able to find one day indications of the Guben on an air picture of MPA Flandern because it is still a mystery: some eyewitnesses confirm a several hundreds of metres long cable on top of wooden poles North West of the Adcock above the ground whilst in a postwar interview a former Kriegsmarine Officer of the MPA Flandern firmly denied the existence of a Guben in Bruges.
