Flugmeldemess-Stellung Karpfen, Ar 31

There are two strongpoints, in the north Ar 31N with a partly visible 604. More south lies the Luftwaffe radarsite "Karpfen" which was built almost completely to fortress standard and had a L 479 and 3 x L 486. Main radars were 2 x Würzburg and a Freya radar. The site was divided into two complexes both protected against air attacks by a Flakzug. One had 2 x L 409 and 1 x L 410, the southern one had 2 x L 409A and 1 x L 410A. The beach was protected by two KwK guns which were emplaced in the open on Vf 66 bunkers. Later they were 'Verschartet' and put under the roof of two 667s.
