Back to the beacon list.

NDB NIK, St.Niklaas, 28 May 2006

This NDB does no longer exist. We where lucky, a big part of the beacon was still standing. Only the antenna wire was missing. The beacon was located in the neighbourhood of the VOR/DME.
We drove along the E17 and N16 to St.Niklaas. At that village we took the road to Beveren. After some time this road goes over a viaduct. After going over the viaduct turn right into the Passtraat. This is an industrial area. Take the first left – Van Landeghemstraat. Just before an S-turn there is a path to the right that leads to the VOR/DME.

From there you follow the road along the S-turn. Then turn right twice. Now you come in the neighbourhood of the beacon, it stands at the RHS. Both Nicky’s are not far from each other.
Alas we had our minds to much with the results of the GPS. But here is with thanks to Google Earth the route to the remains of the beacon as we drove it:
After the viaduct go right, Passtraat. At the T-junction go left, De Cauwerstraat. Next T-junction left again – Brandstraat - and after you passed the first farm building you will see the beacon to the left.
