AFRTS Okinawa 1960 | Okinawa, Tv services, Radio

The American Forces Network can trace its origins to 26 May 1942,
when the
War Department established the Armed Forces Radio
Service (AFRS). A television service was first introduced in 1954
with a pilot station at
Limestone Air Force Base, Maine. In 1954,
the television mission of AFRS was officially recognized and
AFRS (Armed Forces Radio Service) became AFRTS (Armed
Forces Radio and Television Service).


AFN-Japan’s radio services today consist of AM and FM stereo operations at Yokota Air Base (810 AM & cable FM), MCAS
Iwakuni (1575 AM),
FLTACTS Sasebo (1575 AM), Okinawa
(648 AM & 89.1 FM)
and Misawa Air Base (1575 AM).      

AFN-Okinawa ceased over-the-air analog TV operations along
with all other Japanese TV stations on July 24, 2011.
