I'm going to add all the italians VOR and NDB. They are radio beacons
for aeronautical navigation.

I think to use man_made=beacon tag adding some additional information:

        <node id='-1' lat='40.62806' lon='08.24389' >
                <tag k='man_made' v='beacon' />
                <tag k='beacon:code' v='ALG' />
                <tag k='beacon:frequency' v='113.8'/>
                <tag k='beacon:type' v='VOR' />
                <tag k='name' v='ALG' />

according to tagwatch [1] we have jsut 36 beacons in the planet and no
one is a radio-beacon

So, before to import the data i would like to have your comments here:
