Re: Strange broadcast warning just now.
Wow. That is bizarre.

I have the radio on in the background at work all day and rarely hear the Emergency Broadcast System. It always gets my attention though and I perk up to hear "this has been a test...". Well, last week when the missile went up over CA, just as it was hitting the news the EMS buzzer went off and the pause after the tones seemed to take forever. I thought it oddly coincidental, but there have just been too many coincidences recently. They are either conditioning us or are trying to hide just how high the threat level really is and are nervously hitting the test button more often.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Re: Strange broadcast warning just now.
It was as if someone hijacked the warning system and slipped the recording in there. Who would do that? Why that quote??

Re: Strange broadcast warning just now.
Hmm interesting.

What is your emergency alert system then?

Guess some old sirens from ww2? No idea really, but there are some sirens, those are never tested though.

I suppose if it's a test they say "This is a test ..." If they just play tones without it, it could be for real. No idea what the code is or who it's for though.

Heck it's time they did something with it. My whole life there's been "this is a test ..." lots of interruptions, annoying test patterns and tones, it would be a shame if all the system could do was tests!

I told my sister about what I witnessed and she is much more level headed than I in the department of conspiracy or weird happening. This was a quote from her - "I'm tempted to think it was just a liberal anti-war worker bee at the station, putting their job on the line."

Which I believe is totally plausible, along with a few of you who think this too. As it didn't trigger anything that day, or today... that we know of.

Then I told her how that quote could apply now more than ever and she completely agreed.

I dunno, I guess I was just fortunate/unfortunate to witness it and it will give me more ammo when I chat it up with my non conspiratorial theory friends.

Re: Strange broadcast warning just now.
Yesterday, Friday the 19th there was a warning at 11:02am, with no announcement. 11:02? Was that supposed to be a test for some time around noon on Friday? Who knows. But I found it strange. When I heard it I checked the exact time on my computer and phone, then wrote it down.

Is there anyone on the forum who works for broadcasting and can explain this?
