Very High Frequency (VHF) Omni-Directional Range (VOR) is a type of short-range radio navigation system for aircraft, enabling aircraft with a receiving unit to determine its position and stay on course by receiving radio signals transmitted by a network of fixed ground radio beacons.

A similar system that is more precise is called DVOR and can be marked with beacon:type=DVOR

How to map

Set a node node where the transmitter is and add airmark=beacon + beacon:type=VOR
