OX - Oxford NDB / DME / MKR
25th Feb 2003 NDB/DME
26th Apr 2003 MKR
There are seperate NDB and DME units at the Southerly end of Runway 01/19 at Oxford. These can be clearly seen as you turn off the A44 into the road running along the South of the airport..... as I did every morning while at Flying School!
The 75MHz fan marker is used on the 09 NDB/DME instrument procedure into Oxford, It's actually strapped to a barn at Higher Westfield Farm in Combe Village just west of the Airport. It's at 3.1 DME distance on the approach.

The Beacons can be seen at the bottom end of Rwy 01 on the LHS.
