I wonder if Harlan's question is actual or just rhetorical... EVERY part of EAS has involved unfunded mandates we have to enact on the local level.
My instinct is that the entire system is moving to the National Bureaucrats taking over our airwaves any time they desire, eventually doing away with or having no concern about any local EOC having a role. I'm not sure we are not almost there as we are now. Hence, the need for the "National Test" to see who is complying with the top-down control structure of the system. I own several stations, and we "comply" but only to the extent required by law. Jim "Turbo" Turvaville SBE Certified Radio Engineer Turbo Technical Services PH: 719-459-1859 www.jimturbo.com

Subject: [CRTech] IPAWS Subcommittee
CRTechers, Could this IPAWS subcommitee bring forth new ways “...to improve the public alerting system” possibly resulting in FCC mandates that broadcasters are required to enact?
