That was my thought. Obviously mingled with their open MIC pot. But to my ears (and looking at it) it seems like a clip from a WEA.  Both WEA and EAS Attn Signal seem to use 1000khz as the base of the tone though. It may have just been assumed that they were one in the same?

Best,

Anybody who'd like to take a spectral look at that they aired, I made a screenshot showing a WEA tone, an EAS Activation, and what SRN actually played this morning. You can find it here: http://alexmckenzie.com/srnalerttone.jpg

Interesting.  According to what you show on your screenshot, it looks like SRN aired a muffled/noisy copy of the WEA tones.
