Radio beacons in Czechoslovakia in the 1980s

Rádiomajáky v Československu v 80. letech / rokoch

For historical information only, do not use for navigation or aviation purposes!

Czechoslovakia existed until 1992 and then divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The following list contains the aeronautical radio beacons that were active in former Czechoslovakia during the 1980s. For an Eastern Bloc country, Czechoslovakia was quite extensively equipped with VOR or VORDME radio beacons.

The overview is incomplete, as a lot of data on military radio beacons are missing.

At military airfields, the identifiers of beacons are usually derived from the first and last characters of the callsign. Example: Callsign "DETEKTOR" → identifiers "DR", "D" (main landing direction), "RD" and "R" (secondary landing direction)

All information is outdated and may not be used for navigational purposes.
