FEMA F**ks Up Again! Runs 10 minute "presidential alert message" on 500 Illinois Radio Stations

Illinois Impacted by Inadvertent EAS Trigger

6.26.2007

Several hundred stations in Illinois were affected by an EAS mistake this morning, sources told Radio World.

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency was testing new EAS equipment; what was supposed to be a closed-circuit test of the 10-minute presidential alert message from FEMA actually was broadcast to some 500 stations.

Starting at 7:30 this morning up to about 8 a.m., depending on when each station in the chain got the message, their programming was taken over for 10 minutes. All listeners in the Chicago area, for example, heard the alert tones and then WGN’s regular programming (with no explanation), according to sources. In other parts of the state, listeners would have heard dead air after the alert tones.

A monthly test would have lasted for two minutes, as opposed to the 10-minute presidential alert.

Chicago, Rockford, Quincy, and Springfield were among the affected areas.

Radio World will post further updates in tomorrow’s Leslie Report.

Messages to FEMA were not immediately returned.

WHY THE "PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE", WHY 10 MINUTES, AND WHAT WOULD A "PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE" SAY?

SOUNDS LIKE THEY WERE GETTING A "PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE" READY, OTHERWISE IT WOULD'VE BEEN A 2 MINUTE MISTAKE AND NOT A
10 MINUTE MISTAKE. DON'T THOSE ASSHOLES HAVE A TRANSISTOR RADIO TO MONITOR THEIR FUCK-UPS?!

I have to assume this was NOT accidental.

They may be testing the public to see if anyone panicked.


Can disclosure of Ebens be far behind ?

THINK:

CME - Chicago Mercantile Exchange
CBOE - Chicago Board Options Exchange
Chicago Board of Trade

It will give the GOONS the opportunity to CRASH THE MARKETS so as to divert attention to the underlying factors that are going to CRASH THE MARKETS anyway.

THEY will have someone to BLAME for a FINANCIAL ARMAGEDDON whilst diverting the attention away from themselves and their CRIMINAL COMPLICITY of RIGGING THE MARKETS and taking ALL of the LOOT for themselves.

(IN MY OPINION)

This message made it to northwest Indiana as well. My aunt only has basic tv and she had ten minutes of dead air where the Presidential alert was supposed to be. I find this rather funny since all we get is dead air when the President is actually speaking.
