Why so many Emergency Broadcast tests?
Anyone else in Ohio or other parts of the US been getting slammed with this annoying (although important) emergency broadcast tests that usually happen later at night?

It's been happening all week for me, and I have been watching an HGTV show for the past half hour and already 3 tests have gone off in that half hour....


Usually, these tests only happen once or twice a week at about 3 AM....


I wonder why.

Re: Why so many Emergency Broadcast tests?
I mean, 3 in a half hour? Isn't it overkill?

I just want to know if it is an Ohio thing, because the Warning said something to the degree of "An EAS official had released a mandatory emergency broadcast test for the following counties: Ohio until 9/29/2011."

That is not verbatim, I didnt write it down lol.

Claearly a PsyOP, i can`t see why the system will need "tests" that often". You test something, it`s "working" and that`s it. No more tests needed.

Re: Why so many Emergency Broadcast tests?
That's true. Maybe there was lack of communication so that is why I saw it three times within that half hour....but I doubt it.

The tests are a bit different from the weekly ones I am used to.


But looking at the similar topics, it seems I am not alone, it's been happening for awhile now. I dont generally watch too much TV though so I just noticed it...

Here in Central NY we are Time Warner customers. We are being told it is a network issue. I'd like to know if they are telling the truth? You other people that are experiencing this are you also Time Warner customers? We are getting the message sometimes 5 or 6 times in primetime. Here is the article mentioning it:

[link to www.9wsyr.com]

This article also mentions the 11-9-11 nationwide test.

Re: Why so many Emergency Broadcast tests?
I have also noticed more emergency broadcast tests in the last month. I live in VA. There were 2 "monthly" required tests in one week and then last week a required weekly emergency test. Then with the national ones on 11/9 I'm paranoid something is going on. I know it sounds just crazy but I have never seen so many emergency tests on the tv in one month.

Re: Why so many Emergency Broadcast tests?
We have been subjected to the required weekly test for about 10 times a day for months now. I live in Alabama. I understand that they are trying to make a test that is nationwide. I guess so they can tell everyone in the country at the same time in all the time zones, "Good Bye!"

Re: Why so many Emergency Broadcast tests?
May not mean anything, but this struck me as odd. I went to get a few groceries this afternoon. The store was bringing in a shitload of water by the pallet loads. The shelves were already fully stocked with water, so they were just piling it up next to the shelves on the floor.

I asked the guy if they were anticipating running out and he said they were preparing for the rush.

It's odd to me because you never see this here unless one heck of a storm/hurricane is headed this direction. Hurricane season is over. So I'm wondering what "rush" he was talking about.

Had it happen 9 times in one day on last month. I think that's a record..but it still is way above normal in my area. Clearly the shit is coming and they'll want to give us messages on the EAS as to just how fucked we are.
