The former transmission station Radio Kootwijk is for Dutch perspectives an isolated and outlying spot. It lies at the heart of an extended nature area. Since the beginning of the twenties of the previous century, from this place messages were sent into the ether. First, telegrams were dispatched by means of Morse code indicators, a bit later also a radio telephony connection came. In the beginning it was mostly to keep in contact with Indonesia, later also with other countries.

It has been an important center of communication and at the same time it will always be one of the most isolated places in the Netherlands.
