At the lighthouse "Bovbjerg Fyr" there is two interresting antenna systems - a lightening direction finder and a coast emergency radio system. Below there are some pictures of the two systems.
For the danish readers there are more information, about the lightening direction finder, at the NET Professor homepage.
The lightning direction finder - about 50 meters north of Bovbjerg Fyr.
One more picture of the lightning direction finder.
A picture of the lightning direction finder from the top of Bovbjer Fyr.
The antenna at the left is used for coast emergency radio transmission at the North Sea.
One picture of the coast emergency radio antenna. The antenna at the left background is the AIS/VOR/xxx(HF freq.)/mobile antenna tower at Ramme at the west coast of Denmark. Read more about the AIS/VOR/XXX/mobile antenna tower in Ramme here.
A little more zoom.
