As far as I know, several European shortwave radio stations transmit regularily in Indonesian language. Most often only for half an hour or so daily. These include :
Ranesi (Belanda), DW (Germany), BBC (England)
But sometimes even RRI may be heard in Europe.
Anybody interested? If so I shall publish "How to"...

I often listen to
if you type in into your browser, the windows media player starts and retrieves the music. They play a kind of tapes so everyday, more or less the same songs, but hey! It is something.

Hi Nienke,

I'm interested. Please explain (frequencies and time..).

By the way: Did you already met my wife's family in Kaskakassen? The house is called "Helena" and is situated at about 200 m distance from your school. The name of my wife is Fanny. We stayed there in december 2002.

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.
