It was called "Sonderbetriebsstelle Kesseling 0". 3.3 km from here they had their transmitter called "Sonderbetriebsstelle Kesseling 1" and 5.5 km their transmitter "Weibern 2"
The windows towards the road had armoured glas protection. In the garden were 4 wells and on the other side of the road a creek was damed up for water supply.
