The large colonial radio station in Bandoeng was by far the largest radio station operated by the Japanese authorities during the Pacific-Asia War, even larger than their home base at Nazaki in Japan with its three transmitters at 50 kw.
Station personnel in Bandoeng recorded off air the tuning signal, station announcements and other significant items from Radio Australia and then wove these segments into their own programming, with the intent of capturing unsuspecting listeners in Australia.
However, it is understood that the majority of the shortwave transmissions from the island of Java during this era were from Bandoeng, regardless of the callsigns in use.

 Eighty Years of Radio in Indonesia
The main communication station at Bandoeng began to relay broadcast programming on shortwave for the benefit of listeners throughout Indonesia, and as well as in Australia, other countries in Asia, and also back in Holland itself.
Radio Batavia, under the Bandoeng callsign PLE, conducted weekly music broadcasts on 15.93 metres, and transmitter callsigns PLE PLW and PMB took part in the famous round-the-world relay in June 1930, and again two years later.
These transmitters were frequently on the air also as intermediate stations for the relay of broadcasts from London and Holland to Australia and New Zealand.

The five radio stations in the five countries were located at Bandoeng in Indonesia, Singapore in Malaya, Bangkok in Thailand, Shanghai in China, and Nazaki in Japan.
This clandestine programming was on the air from a transmitter that had been installed at Bandoeng some 10 years earlier, and it was on the air in pre-war days under several callsigns, though perhaps the best known was the callsign PLE.
All of these freedom broadcasts from Bandoeng in Indonesia, noted initially on 9380 kHz, were heard closing with a recording of the well known march, "Liberty Bell." These shortwave signals were heard by many international radio monitors in Australia and New Zealand, as well as by the government monitoring station near Melbourne in Victoria.

 Pacific War 1941-1945: Re: Vesting Bandoeng, George Eller at 2/24/2005 04:20
I think the fact that the bulk of the forces under MacArthur and Ter Poorten were inferior to those of the Japanese emphasized the need to minimize their deficiencies and maximize their advantages.
Felix, on another message, commented, "Prior to the ABDA train of thought, the Dutch strategy had been one of combined arms off Java, with a last stand at the Preanger position." I am a little baffled as to where this position was located.
I have examined one map which shows Bandoeng within a district called "Priangan" which is bordered by Buitenzorg, Batavia, Cheribon and Banjoemas.
