There are 3 ways to listen to Indonesian languageRadio Broadcasts :
1) Have a look on the following sites. Chose life broadcast. Times according their schedules. Possible addresses are :
2) If you are within the “footprints” of some TV satellites, you may receive Indonesian and Malaysian radio programs with your TV down converter and a satellite radio receiver. The best known is of course Palapa, which radiates over SE-Asia. But it seems that even Hotbird for Europe has Malaysian programs. May be RRI too?
3) My favorite method: You need
- a short wave radio receiver. Check for a band switch marked SW, Shortwave, KW Kurzwelle, OC Ondes courtes, or similar.
- an antenna. For stations transmitting from Europe, the built-in rod-antenna does the trick. Else you need some 5 to 20m of electrically conducting wire. Best would be to hang it outside your room, in free space, but this would require to comply with your local thunderstorm prescriptions.
Connect it to the antenna terminal of your receiver. If there is only a rod antenna, reception is usually better if you just make 5 turns around the rod with the insulated wire, without electrical connection.
The frequencies and times of transmission are found on above mentioned sites. These are usually in the early afternoon or around midnight in Europe. Once you spotted the transmissions you may use your programmable cassette recorder and listen the day after.
