Netherlands — Dutch Espionage Station Shut Down by 5G Interference

“There seems to be no other option than relocating the Burum antennas because of the arrival of the 5G. (…) The Cabinet is therefore going to work out the option of relocation.”

State Secretary Keijzer — Letter to the House of Representatives (December 2018)

The NSO satellite dishes in Burum — a Dutch Intelligence listening station — uses the 3.5 GHz frequency band

December 24 2018 — The Dutch government will send a special envoy to partner countries to look whether there are willing to host a Dutch satellite interception station. The spy antennas must be moved out of Burum — North of the country — because the 5G internet will cause too much interference.

The station is used to intercept satellite communications for the intelligence services AIVD and MIVD.

The station uses the same range of frequencies — the 3.5 GHz band — as the future 5G network.

Although the 5G network consists of a series of frequency spectrums, the 3.5 GHz band has been designated as the international standard.

The TNO Research Institute has concluded that it is not possible to optimally use the 3.5 GHz band in the north of the Netherlands for both the 5G and the espionage station.

The details of the plan are unknown at this stage. However, it seems certain that the spy antennas will be relocated abroad.

This means that a special treaty must be signed with the country where the dishes will be installed.
