Indonesia on SW

All those who have been active DXers in 1970-1990 remember well the numerous Indonesian Shortwave stations on tropical bands. Now we have only a few left like a couple of RRI stations - the most commons are on 3325 (Palankaraya), 3345 (Ternate), 3976 Pontianak, 3987 Manokwari and 3995 Kendari. The closing down ceremony with a famous "Rayan Pulau Kelapa"-song is very well remembered among us. During my latests visits to my Haapavesi QTH (almost in the middle of Finland) I checked of course some of these channels. What else can we say but sing along:
Tanah airku Indonesia
Negeri elok amat kucinta
Tanah tumpah darahku yang mulia
Yang kupuja sepanjang masa
