What Happened?

In Indianapolis, we received the tones just fine but the audio message was coming over both of the stations we monitor as nothing but noise.

 

Anyone else get this?

Effective Time in EAN

The time in the National Test was 2:03:00 EST in the transmitted header all over the country. The DASDEC boxes and likely other newer boxes appeared to have taken that time as the "I am waiting until this is effective". A discussion needs to occur about the reality of that behavior during an EAN.

Sage Endec Problem?

Our station and a few others in our area have noted that the Sage Endec might have a problem. We have two units. One played the entire message through correctly. The other played back the first two seconds then the rest was silence. Another station in the area noted the same thing, one of their three units doing that. Anybody else?

EAS thought

I "witnessed" the test this afternoon. There was no indication that it was a test except to a statement 60 seconds prior to the test that said it was coming at 2:00 PM. When it took place all that happened was a serious interruption of TV reception which lasted approximately 3.5 minutes. I would say that it was a complete failure in our area. It needs a lot more work!
