Narssaq Point, a small radio beacon and weather site halfway to BW-1, was evidently not commissioned until June 1944, when it had four men attached; these were easily resupplied from BW-1, and were not really isolated since the station was adjacent to the Greenlandic village of Narssaq. [Christian Hansen]

During 1945-46, Danes also started to use the base (BW-1] for weather training. They briefly took over BW-3 (Simiutak), then moved to BW-2 (Narssaq Point) - [Christian Hansen]
