FYI:

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s investigation indicates that a nationally syndicated radio show not affiliated with AT&T accidently sent a message over the National Emergency Alert System. This false message was carried on our network, as well as some other providers. We apologize to our customers."

No $hit.

Dr. Fauci cures nurse Nina without using drugs, she was released today too.

Think Paul Allen will get a refund? Just donated $100M to fight Ebola
Wonder if Paul Allen will get his $100 million back...just donated to fight Ebola, but Dr. Fauci cures them without drugs!!!!

(snippet from page)

It is being called a "False Emergency Alert".

Can an EAS originate from a radio station?

Or does the EAS go to the verse IP Servicing Office then to homes or IP Video Hub Office to homes?

My understanding is video on Demand is stored at the IP Video Hub Office and would make sense that the EAS would be distributed to homes from this location.

So they are saying that all one has to do is take over one single RADIO station and push a button on a EAS box and presto, you are in control of the entire nationwide television network, able to write and broadcast any message you want and the entire nation is a captive audence, well there you go guys.

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
I agree with the poster who said this would be hard to screw up. There has to be a protocol in place - like a three or five tire action fir that broadcast and radio broadcast to roll out. Is there a possibility that we are getting some kind of head's up by certain people? Something is definitely going on here and the more time that goes by without a news conference concerns me. It wasn't perfectly executed since only certain people in the country had this happen to them. Why was that? Is this just to incite fear and no other reason? There has to be a reason or purpose. Nothing is an accident.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 63492018


I truly believe that they are testing to roll out the EAS in only certain areas. What people have to understand is that the EAS was designed to alert the entire nation, not just regions. So was AT&T was targeted as an attempt to test modification of the system by region?

Another method of transporting digital information across a large infrastructure is by sending a low current carrier signal across power lines. If there were power outages anywhere in Northern Texas or Northern Georgia, there is your smoking gun. Grid isolation, send the signal, and it stops in that region alone.

Can anyone confirm power outages in Northern Texas or Northern Georgia?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 342233

I am in metro Atlanta, north Georgia...no power outages here.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10325586


North Texas DFW no power outage
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14582371


So I think we can rule out carrier signals as methods of localizing the digital signal. Thanks.

Discard the glitch, hack or hoax for now.
Culprit is a local station with executive prez priviledge to be believed.Info about an emergency which will be announced and implemented on 11/9 or 9.11.2014

Await the date and see what happens.But it might be too late by then(to prepare)

This means that the probabilities about the alert started for an error are same for a nuke missile sent on russia for a mistake... if it really was an error the entire world is with the head in the shit for who is ruling it.

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
Pretty much what I was saying so I'm right withcha. Not sure if this comes from maturity, wisdom or survival but I can't see being part of the problem (watching television, having an iPhone etc) and having any semblance of true happiness or sanity.

These devices are such an addictive distraction (and unhealthy comfort) to so many that they are exactly where the 'leaders' want them to be (just based on reading the majority of replies from this thread alone.)

If Americans (and the Brits) stopped watching television... more than 50% of the problem(s) would vanish. I'm not suggesting to stay ignorant but I am suggesting to stop being bait!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23978456


What method are you using to relay your above message to the rest of us? Did you etch it on a stone and hold it up for your neighbor to type out and post?


The Internet is fine. You can filter in or out whatever you choose to read or watch.

Social media (FaceBook) is a much different thing.

And anyone still watching television (particularly when they're paying hundreds for it every month) is just a fool, They are getting so incredibly brainwashed on such a subconscious level.... they're hardly even aware of it.
Period. End of discussion.

Pretty sure on ATT's Uverse EAS will be distributed out of their IP Video Hub Offices. This was not an accident by a radio station.

Reports were it was a FEMA message, but important to not the EAS is said only to come from the President's office (basically president orders it but it can be about whatever, such as a FEMA message).

I know you have followed the Dallas Ebola situation, I posted late last night that FEMA ESF #8 was to be enacted soon. This just gets crazier and crazier...be safe Beeches!!

Meanwhile, MSNBC has temporarily replaced HLN". I'm on Dish TV. Oh ya and last nite I had closed caption on, it wanst only mispeeled but had odd symbols in the caption words, like jibberish with arabic looking symbols after some of the words.
