Malabar Radio Station

Malabar radio station was the first radio station that connects the Dutch East Indies (Hindia Belanda/Indonesia) to the Netherlands, was officially opened on December


5 May 1923 by the Governor-General Mr. De Fock, once it is also the first telegraph radio communications connection between the Dutch East Indies and Netherlands

The location is at the foot of the mountain Malabar about 30km south of the city of Bandung.
That time to build a radio station Malabar was not easy, Big and heavy equipment and supporting tools for builtthe  transmitter, difficult to reach the site, a small street, uphill, steep cliffs, and cold temperatures and often shrouded in fog.
Antenna cable was built with 2km stretch between the two slopes of the mountain with an altitude of 250-750 meters from the ground, at that time become  the world's tallest antenna.


Malabar station was destroyed along with the Bandung Lautan Api on 24 March 1946.

Currently, in the location that used to stand transmitting station that had become the heart of communication between the Dutch East Indies and the Netherlands, we are still can see the remains of the building.

Some time ago I took to the location that is better known as Gunung Puntang (Mount Puntang), while enjoying the oxygen that are still abundant..
