EAS Emergency Alert SystemOn November 9th the federal government will be temporarily cutting off all television and radio broadcasts as they test the National Emergency Alert System (EAS). The EAS has been around since 1994, but this will the first time that the Feds cut off all broadcast communications in order to test the system.

The test is being conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through FEMA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS).

So is this a random test or part of something bigger?
Over the last year the government seems to be really increasing their overall preparedness efforts.

  1. Shutting everything off may end up being something that will panic the masses. I think I’ll be on high alert that day and will try to keep a low profile.

    Well growing up cold war….we always assumed they could blow the damn horns at the same time. This whole thing is an utter embarrassment……just the mere fact they should have been able to coordinate this in 1955.

    I guess duck and cover was all we really had.

    if they can shut down all com. for a test it just proves that they can shut us off at anytime. then we will only hear what big brother wants us to know.sounds like some other comunist countries.add this to their ability to shut off electricity,water,and regulate traffic on our highways and they have total control.it,s no wonder they are so worried about off grid preppers.just keep your eyes open and your guns loaded.

    Strangely enough, the near earth comet the size of an aircraft carrier is supposed to pass by on the 8th november ….oops!! There may well be a few straglers in the commets tail. Of course, if it does hit then they wont need to worry about the media causing masss panic ;-)

  6. Joe says:

    So, what happens when they turn everything off and it doesn’t get turned back on?

    @DanS.

    No, it will not affect amateur radio unless the local repeater owner has a weather radio alert feature set to go off.

  8. sherman says:
