EAS Test

Post by genlock »

Make sure your EAS stuff works. Obama is going to have a top to bottom test of the thing.
Any bets on how close to the top it fails?

If it doesn't work, Obama is going to call up your reserve unit.
What?
You didn't know you were in a reserve unit?
Surprise!

WOWK sends a test out every Saturday late night with no digital audio just dead air. Does this count as a test? Guess too many have gone home at that time to put the tones on the air. also this test is the same time each week. so much for random testing. I guess with digital these could be recorded as they could not be distorted as with the original audio tones

Either yesterday or the day before I actually heard a station send an EAS DURING A COMMERCIAL!!!

No voice between the tones explaining that it was a test and not geese getting riled up or anything...just the tones during a commercial!!!

How many levels was THAT wrong on?

The EAS unit was probably programed to send out a test each week on a random basis.

Might have a hold-off logic input to keep from killing spots tho. (if used)
