Interesting. What kind of listeningdevices were in use at these sites?

I'm sure I have read somewhere that only 13 KHA-sets were produced, but when you add these sites to the ones already known (ref the US Seacoast Defence-report and other info found in NARA T-1022 ++), the number of KHA-locations in Norway and Denmark will probably exceed 20.

Is 13 sets correct or were there more than one type of equipment in use?

Sorry, I don't have any further information about the KHA's. :sad:

I just thought, this could be interesting for you and I wanted to
give something back after you helped me with the MPHS in Norway. :-D

I have checked some of the available documentation, and it seems there were at least two different systems (maybe more) designated "KHA", but I suspect some confusion on this topic due to the term "Küstenhorchanlagen / KHA" might have been used both as a designation for a specific type of listening device, as well as a genereal term for this type of unit..?

Interesting - I think this must have been the first KHA-installation in the Ofotfiord, later replaced by the installation at Barøya, a bit further west (just from the top of my head, I might remember it wrongly. I reckon Thomas L knows for sure...)?

Snublet over nettsiden din via nettet på jakt etter noe annet. Veldig bra og lærerikt. Bildene av Bogen og den britiske miniubåten oppfører seg litt rart i Chrome, havner liksom i bakgrunnen.

Ser at du har referert til Indicator Loops nettsiden, denne kan anbefales for spesielt interesserte (Natter).
