re: Emergency Alert System Test Runs Into Trouble
For being 60 year old technology it is impressive that it worked at all. Then again, if such a system would be put in place today it would cost several billion dollars above projected cost and blow up your TV.
In the future they should also include reverse 911, SMS, and email to all US subscribers. There are less and less people subscribing to cable and they repurpose their TV to be a computer monitor. Maybe even throw a message up on search engines.
