Why does CAP have to control EAS? CAP should work along side EAS to provide additional information when needed. Why not have EAS and CAP messages originate in the same system but be independent of each other. Making them redundant and not dependent on each other provides a more robust and reliable system. This provides us with the benefits of the new system but does not open the existing EAS chain to the frailty of the... more »
EAS Equipment Installation, Configuration, and Operation
I understand that the FIPS codes used for this test will be the Washington DC codes. I also understand that many EAS encoders will have no issue with this, as they ignore the FIPS codes for a EAN. Is there a list of equipment that will have issues using these codes?
How will this impact stations close to the Washington DC area, that can hear and may even monitor a DC station as their PEP?
I would like to see the Manufacturers of CAP solutions for EAS follow the lead of TFT and set up CAP testing servers so that end users can test their upgrade/new equipment to see if the CAP set up is functioning correctly. This is important since there are only CAP servers in some states and it will help contract engineers and techs set up CAP solutions more efficiently. If CAP doesn't work at the end point, the whole... more »
