Soon we will be upon two significant dates, 11/11/11 and 11/9/11. The digit configuration happens once every hundred years.
Here’s something to think about… It is well known that terrorists enjoy the prospect of significant dates and places. We all of course remember 9/11. Well, on 11/9/11, for the first time in history the US government will ‘test’ the Emergency Alert System (EAS), NATIONWIDE, all at once at High Noon, Mountain-Standard-Time.
Did you notice the numerology of the date? If you were a terrorist, would you not be tempted??
The emergency broadcast test will interrupt ALL TV media outlets, Radio, for 3 minutes.
The test will be conducted through the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s NWS.
Is the date of the test, 11/9/11, pure coincidence?
Is the time of the test, during the middle of the day, purposeful so that most everyone will notice? (e.g. why not during the middle of the night, since this is a first-time test?)
Or do they know something that we don’t know?
If the numerology of the date 11/9/11 isn’t significant enough.. is it further coincidence that the test will be 2 days prior to the date 11/11/11, a date that ‘some’ may consider significant?
I find it somewhat suspicious that this test, being a first-time ‘test’, will occur during the day when Americans are up and about, rather than say, 2AM when most everyone is sleeping. I suppose it would be even more suspicious if they did this in the early evening during prime time…
Given the dates, and given that there are plenty of wackos out there wishing to disrupt and do harm, maybe it wouldn’t hurt to pick up a few extra stores of food and supplies? Just a thought.
Spread the news.
Despite the conspiracy slant of this article, I do believe that everyone should own a emergency-alert-radio.
Update: After receiving this email from Comcast, I wonder (even more) about why they are doing this during the middle of the day, and why for so long (3 minutes) which will apparently result in many potential problematic issues with cable and satellite TV subscribers and their equipment. Why not do this in the middle of the night…
Dear Comcast Customer:
On Wednesday, November 9 at 2 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), FEMA and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct the nation’s first ever Emergency Alert System (EAS) test. The purpose of this test is to help determine if the national-level system will work as designed, should officials ever need to send a national alert.
This test will last approximately three minutes and will be seen on all local, cable, and satellite TV stations across the country, as well as radio.
Here’s What You Should Know
Your Comcast programming will be temporarily interrupted. However, as soon as the test ends, you will be returned to your regularly scheduled programming. While we do not anticipate an interruption in your service, in some rare cases, you may need to:
• Use your remote to channel up and then channel down or power down your box to fully restore programming after the test completes.
• Any DVR recordings that are in progress during this test will be interrupted, and in some cases, lost.
If you experience the Emergency Alert System message for more than five minutes, please do the following:
• Power-cycle your cable box by unplugging the power cord from the outlet
• Wait thirty seconds and then plug it back in
The guide data and Video On Demand content will take a period of time to fully restore. Please wait 20 minutes before choosing Video On Demand as this might result in other errors with your box.
