Militaire communicatie


Jaap tussen de collectie

The soldiers room (18) with water cellar was home to the accumulated collection of military radio transmitting receiving equipment collector Jaap Fransen. An interesting collection of authentic radio and communications equipment is assembled.  The goal is to maximize these devices running so that the visitors during open days radio links can connect to other locations. It will try to involve as many other forts. The fort at Veldhuis and Edam are therefore in focus.
