FW: Nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System on Nov 9th.

On Nov 9th Homeland Security and the FCC will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS), A.K.A. Emergency Broadcast System. This will be the first time the entire system has been tested at one time.

When the alert is activated a disclaimer is supposed to announce that this is a test, on the radio and electronic message boards this will should not be an issue. However on TV some of the older equipment will not display video announcing that this is a test. Lastly the test will last about 3 minutes which is longer than normal.
