NDB stands for non directional beacon, a radio signal like an ordinary radio station. It sends out a coded morse signal and if you are within range you can determine the direction with a radio compass in other words an ADF, Automatic Direction Finder. It is a low frequency radio signal, a high frequency radio signal is a typical VOR. Often combined with a DME, distance mesuring equipment
