Noticed that a few TV stations in Tulsa triggered their EAS encoders. Could this have been coded wrong or just a lame excuse to send an EAS?

If I had to guess, I'd say that looks like the work of Lloyd Colston, the EM in Altus. He's one of the few people I know that knows about the EAS and will actually request the system be used from time to time when the need arises.

As far as "lame excuse", well, do you just want them to notify when the nukes are dropping in our yards or what sir?
