2019 EAS National Test Report Issued

Posted on May 29th, 2020 by

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau has issued a report of the August 7, 2019 Nationwide EAS Test, highlighting a number of issues that caused breakdowns in performance by EAS Test participants.  Some of those issues are reported by broadcast station participants, and include monitoring source problems, equipment performance or configuration, or degraded/poor signals.  The report does not mention a 2020 Nationwide EAS Test, but we would not be surprised if such an announcement comes soon.  Should a 2020 test be conducted in August, reporting would begin about 30 days before the test with the EAS Form One.
