Your IP address is showing you are in or your internet provider is in Manila. First, what is "AFN?" If it is a medical issue and you are needing advice or help, there is a VA clinic in Manila but I do not have contact info for them. A good source of help is the Angeles City VFW Post. Their website IS HERE. Calling them, ask to speak to an American Citizen such as the Post Commander etc.
Also you may want to contact the American Citizens Services Office at the US Embassy Manila.



Hope that will help,


Gene

You will need to procure a receiver from one of the military exchanges somewhere other than the Philippines (no bases here, hence no exchanges). The nearest would be Guam, Okinawa or Korea. Last I heard receivers cost around $300. Once you get the receiver, you will need to register it and procure a local dish (something like what you see for Dream TV). You then provide the coordinates of where you want to set it up to the AFN folks and they will give you Azimuth (direction) and Elevation for your location. It will be to the south and probably southwest from the PI.

For everyone's education, AFN (Armed Forces Network) is a free broadcast provided to US Military/Retired Military worldwide. You only have to pay for the equipment. It is now broadcasting sporting events, TV shows and movies in HD. Only downside is that it's susceptible to rain fade and you have to put up with the military public services announcement/stupidmercials. There are no regular type commercial breaks.
