in Southeast Tennessee, we received the national test from our primary
monitoring radio station first. It was sent to us with no audio.
That test was relayed on our station, but with the tones only. No audio,
since there was no audio sent to us.
came the test from our primary monitoring station AGAIN moments later, but it
did not activate our system because we had already relayed the first test.
Seconds later came the test from IPAWS with no audio. IPAWS did sent the
text of the message though. Seconds later, came the test from our
secondary primary monitoring station, with no audio. Neither of these
tests activated our system. Both of the stations we monitor are in
anyone else have problems like this? The test went well as far as
sending and relaying the tones...but the audio message telling listeners what
was going on was nowhere to be found.
