Hello Anton
I have been in Indonesia five times - always to Bandung on business.  I 
finally was able to buy a place in Arizona with enough property to put 
up some antennas.  For 160m, I put up an Inverted L on a 70 foot tower - 
under a SteppIR DB-36 Yagi.  I was able to work 108 DXCC countries in 
two years with that antenna.  I have an SAL-30 RX antenna ready to 
install this year, but my first 108 countries from the USA West Coast 
were worked without an RX antenna.
I hope to have a QSO with you when you get your 160 antenna up.
