US Shutdown: AFN Diego Garcia reduces broadcasts

AFN-Diego-GarciaThe American Forces Network’s Pacific transmitting site, Diego Garcia, will have reduced radio broadcasts due to the US government shutdown. The following is a statement from their Facebook page:

“In light of the government shutdown, because of mandatory staff reductions at the AFN broadcast center, AFN will reduce television services to the news and pentagon channels only. AFN radio will carry some football games live on the voice. We’ll keep you updated as the situation progresses.”

AFN Diego Garcia broadcasts on 12,579 kHz and 4,319 kHz . Many thanks to Sudipta Ghose for the tip!
