EAS overload

OK I know the emergency alert system is needed ..

But today alone I have received 3 tests alerts, if every local channel does its required monthly test at different times, I have a feeling people are not even going to pay attention to this crying wolf signal...............

Re: EAS overload

I'm so tired of the EAS bungling in my area (Chicago). Weekly tests, monthly tests - all the same. Twice in December the stupid thing went off at 1:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m on the same days. It is way too loud and disconcerting in the middle of the night. Once a month testing would be enough. Meanwhile, we visited our son who has Direct TV for 10 days, and not once did we undergo this frustration. I'm really ready to switch, for this and other reasons.
