Information about the current status of the tmz Wittmund may be requested on frequencies 118.730 MHZ (Wittmund tower), 131.015 MHZ (Wittmund radar) or 125.100 MHZ (Langen information).
In the tmz Wittmund, aircraft flying under VFR, except for model aircraft and unmanned aircraft systems, shall be equipped with an automatic altitude reporting transponder and shall set their transponder to code 7000 without request to do so. Exceptions from this obligation may be granted by the competent ATC unit via Wittmund radar via written agreement or radiotelephony if the safety of air traffic is not impaired.
In addition, the following urgent recommendation applies: in addition to setting transponder code 4472, it is highly recommended to maintain continuous air-ground voice communication watch on frequency 131.015 MHZ (Wittmund radar) when flying in the tmz.
