In the night of October 17- 18 a total of 24 coax cables and 6 meters of copper cable (ground cable) were cut at the club station, which is located at the Avondsterweg in Leeuwarden. The damage is estimated to run into thousands of Euros.

    The copper in the coax had little value if scrapped as coax.
