Approved For Release 2008/04/02 : CIA-RDP86-0004OR000100110004-9 FOREIGN BROADCAST INFORMATION SERVICE UNITED STATES FORCES, JAPAN OKINAWA BUREAU APO SAN FRANCISCO 96239 MOK-2057 6 August 1982 MEMORANDUM FOR: Director, FBIS THROUGH: Chief, Operations Group SUBJECT: Monthly Report--Okinawa Bureau July 1982 The Bureau's air-conditioning system was shut down for repair by local contractor from 28-31 July, the second such incident in nine months. Prior to the maintenance several areas of the operations building, including the monitors' booths, were not being cooled sufficiently for even minimum working comfort. The inefficiency of the present system has been recognized for some time--upgrading was recommended by RECD in 1979--and this fact has been dramatically brought to light with the onset of true Okinawa summer weather. Fortunately the repair work took less time than anticipated, thus shortening the duration of the negative effects of 90-degree temperatures on both employees and equipment. However, after the maintenance work was completed it was discovered that the motor generator sets would not restart automatically after loss of power without manual intervention. This means that every time the Bureau switches from mains to generator power or vice versa the bulk of the Bureau's electrical systems have to be shut down to restart the motor generator sets. Due to these developments, we have requested a study and recommendations from a local professional engineering firm.

On Moscow TV coverage, we assumed coverage of the Friday edition of the 1700 GMT "Vremya" newscast to cover for one of London Bureau Russian monitor's two days off. There were two "Studio 9" programs during the month, on 3 and 31 July; a round- table discussion hosted by Yuriy Zhukov, chairman of the Soviet Committee for the Defense of Peace, on 16 July; and two panel discussions on the Soviet food program moderated by political observer L.A. Voznesenskiy, on 22 and 27 July. Processing of these latter two programs, each well over an hour in duration, is still underway. 3. A Japanese Communist Party Congress was held in Tokyo from 27 to 31 July. Coverage was highlighted by the 22,000-word opening speech by JCP Central Committee Chairman Kenji Miyamoto and the 30,000-word Central Committee report delivered by JCP Presidium Chairman Tetsuo Fuwa. Texts of both items are being processed from AKAHATA. 4. We completed our cruising survey of Taiwan radio broadcasts to the Chinese mainland as well as our experimental coverage of new Jiangsu and Fuzhou provincial services broadcast to Taiwan. No new programs were added to regular coverage. Chinese Monitor while on leave in Taiwan, placed STAT subscriptions for three Taiwanese periodicals--THE EIGHTIES and THE STATESMAN, both monthlies, and the weekly ECONOMIC NEWS. We are also placing a subscription for the monthly LIEN HO YUEH KAN. 4 5. A study of the pressfax operation was conducted from 5-15 July and the results forwarded to Headquarters.
