    Favorite Links about Yokota Air Base
    NOTE: SOME OF THESE SITES HAVE BEEN TAKEN DOWN SINCE 9/11. OTHERS HAVE BEEN MADE AVAILABLE ONLY FROM .MIL DOMAINS. CHECK BACK LATER TO SEE IF THEY ARE AVAILABLE. SORRY.
  • See what is showing at the Yokota Theater
  • What's showing on AFN-- the military station we get on TV - yes this is the correct address. If you are having trouble with your browser finding it from this link- go to Google.com do a search for "AFRTS" -without the quotes and then Click on the first link "AFRTS Home" -- It seems to work more often. I don't know why this does this, but my best guess is it has something to do with DNS files and the vastness of the internet. -- To see the TV schedule, click on the box "AFN on TV" in upper left corner.
  • Eagle 810 Schedule - Can also be found by sifting through AFRTS (above) through "AFN radio" and then "Overseas Stations" and the "Japan"
