The article also stated that special hookup kits—available at the Navy Ex- 1 change—will be necessary to receive closed circuit television. These kits must be purchased by individuals who wish to receive TV and FM programming. The special hookup kits are on sale at the Navy Exchange in the Personalized Services Center, Main store and Stereo Shop. There are two standard kits consist- ing of either six or 12 feet of cable, a connector at each end of the cable and a transformer. The six-foot kit will cost $4.25 and the 12-foot kit will cost $5.10. With the kit, all you have to do is connect one end of the cable by screwing it into the wall jack—previously in- stalled by Public Works—and the other end to the transformer. There are two small wires coming from one end of the transformer which should be hooked to the VHF antenna connection on the back of the television receiver. If persons use the kit, they can hookup only one television set or one FM stereo receiver and position the set close to the wall jack. If anyone desires to hookup an ad- ditional television set or the stereo FM receiver, they may purchase special hookups from the Navy Exchange TV Repair Store. Persons will have to buy cable, connector ends, a transformer and a special splitter. The following is the cost of the individual components: **Cable: 11 cents a foot **Connector Ends: 20 cents each **Transformer: $1.10 **Splitter: $3.90 **Barrel Splice: 45 cents **Coiled Cable Kit: $8.50 **Kit with Splitter: $7.00 The listed components can be bought only in the TV Repair Store. Salesper- sons at the store will fit the connector ends to the cable with a special crimp- ine tool, if customers desire. Anyone wanting special hookups should go to the TV Repair Shop and tell the salesperson the length of cable desired. All the components needed for the special hookup will be sold to the customer. The cable discussed here is special coaxial cable approximately one-quarter inch in diameter. It may be purchased from the exchange or through other elec- tronics sales outlets. More than 2,000 cable hookup kits will be available for NATO Base personnel. The cable should not be placed under heavy furniture or in heavy foot traffic areas. The closed circuit television system for the NATO Base is expected to be in operation by Nov. 25. At that time, AFRTS will broadcast one television station and one FM radio station through the cable system. AM radio will con- tinue to be broadcast on its present frequency. The new system will not produce any significant change in current radio or television programming. Although the cable system is being partially tested at this time with some locations already on the line, the sys- tem will not be fully operational until the end of November. Consequently, some units may already be receiving their television reception via the cable while the majority of others receive their pictures across the air waves. Persons are advised not to hookup their sets to the cable until the system is fully operational.

When he returned, he then turned away from the welcome-home crowd to dry his eyes. Gesturing toward the rising sun, Carter said, "I think the sun is rising on a beautiful new day, a beautiful new commitment to the future." Carter promised to make the United States government a source of pride. He stated, "My strength comes from you, the American people," adding, "it's time to tap the tremendous strength, vitality and sense of broth- erhood and sisterhood to unify this countryland (and) make it great once again." Carter's first words were to praise President Ford...saying: "I want to congratulate the toughest, most formi- dable opponent anybody could possibly have. He is a good and decent man." At press time, President Ford had not made a statement. CO asks all hands to 'tell it like it is9 during NHRM survey The Navy Human Resources Management Survey will begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Midnight Sun Club and will run for a three-day period. All military personnel and civilians who supervise military personnel will be scheduled to take the survey by their departments. The survey, which takes approximately one hour to complete, asks questions, covering many aspects of Navy life, and is designed to identify those issues which cause most concern to personnel of the Naval Station. Captain Jack T. Weir, Commander Naval Forces Iceland/Commanding Officer, Naval Station Keflavik, is dedicated to im- proving command excellence and increas- ing overall satisfaction with Navy life on the Naval Station, Lieutenant T. J. Turner, Human Resources Development of- ficer, points out. Furthermore, according to Lt. Turner, Capt. Weir is asking "all hands" to participate in this survey and "tell it like it is", drawing an accurate pic- ture of the living and working condi- tions aboard the NATO Base. Lt. Turner says that the survey will provide command leaders with hard data on the views and opinions of base personnel. Explaining that the survey is a management effort to open lines of com- munication up and down the chain of com- mand, Lt. Turner and his assistant, Chief Machinist's Mate D. A. Coke, ap- peared on AFTV yesterday evening. Survey results will be fed back by department and work group to all parti- cipants and will show supervisors at all levels• how personnel feel about their superiors, their peers, their job, their duty station and the Navy in general. The survey, states Lt. Turner, will measure such specific areas as leader- ship, motivation and morale, equal op- portunity, training and utilization of people, discipline, communications, con- cern for people, drug and alchohol abuse and interaction with peoples of other countries. Since results will be used to indi- cate areas to receive greatest emphasis for improvement in the future, and will provide a data base for revising and up- dating the command action plan, it is important that all personnel answer each question thoughtfully and frankly, ac- cording to Lt. Turner. The completed questionnaires will be processed by automated equipment in Nor- folk, Va. The questionnaires then will summarize the answers in statistical form. Individual answers will remain strictly confidential, since they will be combined with those of many other persons.
