Tracking AFN from all available positions and how to watch When we talk AFN, what mainly comes to mind is sports. American forces network(AFN) Is a satellite packaged owned by the US government and operated by their armed forces. This satellite can be nailed on multiple satellite position. AFN easiest teaching position in Nigeria, for example, is on Eutelsat 9.0E. The satellite package is put up basically to meet the broadcasting needs of the US servicemen and women including their Families. They have been at this for 75 years down the line. Today, we will discuss AFN tracking positions/frequencies but before then, let me talk about some channels that showed UCL last week

AFN tracking positions/frequencies
Although you can also track AFN on 34.5w mtn Worldwide position, I won’t advise this because you will not get the full package if you do. The best position for Nigerians and the west is on 9.0E with a 1-meter dish or larger.You can receive these channels for the following positions
Eutelsat 9°E -11804 V 27500– KU BAND and a min of 1-meter dish. It opens with most powervu auto roll decoders
Thor 0.8°W -4175 R 28000
Intelsat 64.2°E -4093 L 3680
Many regions in Africa find it tough tracking AFN on 9E. If you happen to fall into this category, try the other alternatives. Thor 0.8°W 4175 R 28000 Intelsat 64.2°E -4093 L 3680 for Thor 0.8west you need a minimum of 1.8m dish and a c band LNB and the tracking Tp is 4175 H 28000 R stands for H and L for V note when tracking this particular satellite you don’t need the dielectric plate inside the c-band LNB its broadcast as circular but in the real sense it is linear. On the contrary, for Intelsat 64.2 you also need 1.8meters or larger to track with tp 4093 V 3680 you need to insert the plate when tracking this.
