Currently Required Weekly Tests (RWT) do not include audio and therefore do not simulate all the elements of a real EAS event. Further, broadcasters are not warning originators so weekly tests do not simulate either manual or automatic relay of warnings from authorized emergency managers. I suggest that Part 11 be changed so closed circuit weekly or daily testing using IP can be used (if local plans permit it) to verify that warning originators are indeed connected to CAP EAS equipment at entry points.
