Heard the AFN’s MW service in the restraining area

Today, I went to an event in the US Navy base in Yokosuka.

We can get into the designated zone only a few times in a year.

I heard the AFN's (American Forces Network) MW service (on 810kHz) by my ER-C57WR in the restraining area.

The JMSDF (Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force) also operates a military port next to the American base, as well as numerous training facilities at scattered locations around the city.

This city's sights that are awe-inspiring for me.

Why?

I assume that I was born and brought up in near there, and feel a kind of familiarity and homing instinct. Yokosuka is famous for having a very American influence.

Even though I've been to the North American continent many times, still like the exotic feel of it's ambience.
