I live in Aasiaat and we all know the old radiostation. Only remnants are left, the semicircular shelter with and old oven, some tracks and bases for some buildings. What I would like to know is whether this base had a sort og gun or not. It seems to me that a gun could have made much sense, because it basically can cover the whole harbour from this vantage point.
It's hard to find any descriptions, written or in other form.
