Well it's been all over TV: EAS test at 2:00pm EST. What happened? Nothing heard here on TV or radio.

Same thing reported on this forum topic post.
"In Southeast Alabama we got nothing at all! No tones, no spoken word, nothing! Radio and TV got nothing!"

Smooth sailing in my neck of the woods. I monitored a Primary Entry Point station for the origination. Within seconds it was relaying on to the Local Program station and within seconds my EAS gear picked it up and relayed it out seconds later.

Well I had already posted this in another thread but I was watching the History Channel via Cable One in Anniston, AL and there was a scrolling message about the TEST at the top of the screen. However after quickly going through several other cable channels, including the local Birmingham, AL television market, most did not seem to have any type of test alert message. There did seem to be at least a few of those local B'ham TV stations that did though.

Goes to show why it's important to have means other than the government at your disposal for getting emergency information. Just saying.

EDIT: Yes, I know it was just a test, but still.

I agree with 'ya there Bob... Government F's it up all the time and anyone would be a fool to rely on our Federal Government anymore.
