No one remembers the Emergency Broadcast System tests they did all the time decades ago? With that high pitched beeeeeeep and then "this has been a test of the emergency broadcast system".

This is the next incarnation of that. And a waste of money in my opinion. With the internet, cell phones, tv, etc. information will get out quickly. Notice they didn't bother using it on 9/11 because the media was quick to alert everyone anyway.

How long?

The cable carrier here in Bullhead has been "testing" once a week for all the years I've been here. First NPG, and now Suddenlink, shut down for a 2 minute or so test in the wee hours of the night, with the explanation on the screen... Was there a length mentioned about the shutdown? How long?
