There would have been a range of navigation beacons located all over that part of England during WW2, all with different frequencies and Morse idents.  Also, each airfield would have been likely to have several navigation beacons in its vicinity at different times. You may actually find it’s easier to just setup your own. If you want the current details for airfields in 2021, the UK AIP can be found at www.caa.co.uk

think i'll just end up placing a vehicle with an morse code first 3 letters of airfield. set up some 3 vehicles with radio music, news in england and 5 in france... gotta be careful for some reason if you place a new one on a certain freq, one or all can't be picked up on the mossie's reciever. then there seems to be a problem with the compass... even allowing for variation.

The airfields actually flashed a light beacon in Morse. 

 

Do we have such a light in the editor? Haven’t looked yet.

Maybe one of the Mod folks could  make up one of these Pundit Beacons 😄

It would be interesting to see what morse codes were used for each airfield in the area back in the WWII days. Does anyone have a reference for those?

 

Not sure if this will help but could be a start on the codes

+1 for Pundit lights, where we can control the identifier.

 

Preferably controlled via a trigger.
