    Hello everyone.

    I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan and miss my Directv. :(. Looking to see if you guys have any suggestions for getting FTA in Afghanistan, prefer US channels but anything in english will do. I could get AFN but the signal is very unreliable. I welcome any suggestions anybody might have.

    I'd start with http://www.lyngsat.com/ on the Asia pages and check out what programming is available. Be sure to drill down to the various transponders to see if they have a footprint map available, as many satellites won't be aimed at where you are. Wouldn't want to spend a bunch of time and money trying to pick up sats that aren't aimed at you...

    Also, you can get Armed Forces network programming on C-Band (big dish), using a receiver from most post exchanges.
