Airfield Goetsenhoven, with controltower and ADF antennas.

ADF stands for Automatic Direction Finder. It comprises a navigational instrument used in connection with NDBs (non-directional radio beacons) to determine a relative sounding. The system allows for reliable navigation at low altitudes. Homing or latching onto the NDB is the only means to not get completely lost.
