EAS tests cancelled

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

I saw a copy of an official memo last night that said that FEMA and the FCC have cancelled any regular scheduled tests of the Emergency Alert system on radio and television channels until at least Oct. 2. Does this give us some kind of a timeframe to see something happen? I don't know but it's interesting. I guess they want us to know if we hear an alert, it's for real.

Well they sure haven't said much about it. I haven't heard a check of it in a long time, though. Thanks for the heads up, Deena.
