Leitstrahl

Knickebein

This system used the existing FuBl 1 for guided landing with a frequency of 30-33 MHz. Two or more Knickebein-systems were needed to define the target position.

X-Verfahren

Developed in the early 1930s using 66-77 MHz. It uses a main beam and 3 crossing beams to guide bombers to England.

Y-Verfahren

This system was the successor of the X-Verfahren using 42-48 MHz. It uses a single beam transmitting a modulated radio signal, that was received in the plane and then returned to the gound station. Here it was possible to calculate the position of the plane and to give corrections by radio. The system was interferenced from the beginning and not long in service.

Bernhard

Not really a system based on beacons, but more a positioning system. Called UKW-Drehfunkfeueranlage this system rotates on demand and sends two continous beams in the range of 30-33MHz. It went operational in 1941. The airplane was equiped with the FuG 120 Bernhardine, printing the position of the sender on a Hellschreiber. This enabled the navigator to find the position of the plane.

Elektra-Sonne

At the end of 1940 the LW-Leitstrahl-Fächer-Funkfeuer Elektra-system was developed. It operated at 250-300 KHz and had 3 antennas spaced by 3 wavelenghts. The LW-Leitstrahlfächer-Drehfunkfeuern Sonne-system was an improvement developed in 1942. The signal was now slowly rotating.

Erika

The work on the UKW-Fächer-Phasendrehfunkfeuer Erika finished late in august 1944, where there was no more need for this system and it never went working. It worked at 30-33.3MHz and used 2 antennas with 40 Hz difference spaced in 3 wavelengths. It was intended to be used by special precision bombers to attac England.
