Nationwide EAS Test to Last About 3 Minutes

More technical details about the upcoming national EAS test are trickling out of the FCC.

For one thing, the commission is confirming that the test on Nov. 9 will last for about three minutes, something of an eternity in modern-day radio.

The FCC says that during the test, FEMA will originate a "live" Emergency Action Notification code to all EAS participants, including radio and TV stations, cable systems, Sirius XM, satellite TV providers and wireline video service providers. As part of the test, the public will be told the EAS has been activated for a national emergency, along with an audible notice that "this is a test."

The commission and FEMA, along with stations and cable providers, are working on outreach efforts to inform the public to avoid panic about the test.

There’s also been a lot of debate within engineering circles about how the test will conclude.

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau says the test will end with transmission of the End of Message code, not the Emergency Action Termination code. The bureau says equipment manufacturers have told the commission that by using the EOM, stations won’t need to reconfigure their EAS encoder/decoders to receive and air the test.

Washington, D.C.’s location code will be the origination code for the EAS test. This, too, has been a question for station engineers, since FEMA previously had said there’s no national EAS location code. The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau believes most EAS encoder/decoders will automatically forward the EAN with the Washington code and not require further configuration. However the commission recommends that stations that aren’t sure whether their device will forward an EAN with the Washington code to contact their manufacturer or FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Office via email to

The commission itself doesn’t plan to conduct pre-tests before the nationwide test; however it says FEMA is working with some states, EAS participants and equipment manufacturers to conduct statewide tests of EAS equipment and procedures before the nationwide event.

Stations can find their state’s EAS contact by referring to their state’s EAS plan.

The bureau intends to provide more information before the test.

November 9th communications shutdown: A system reboot needed to activate new code?
October 29, 2011 by ppjg
John Boering
My take on the communications shutdown:
In what is obviously a muscle flexing exercise meant to show the public just how much power and control the federal government really has, all  communications will be cut off for an estimated three minutes on November 9th, 2011.
Claiming this is a test of the emergency response system, the terror alert system, and any other excuse they can come up with, Fema (that would be the same FEMA in charge of those camps they deny exist) will conduct a complete communications shutdown: all TV, radio, internet, and phone systems will be disabled simultaneously. This will be at 1:00 CST.
I am trying to figure out what kind of national emergency would require cutting all communications, broadcasts and internet use? Maybe an emergency in which the government itself feels threatened by …….the people? If this were a test to make sure the system was intact in the event of an emergency I could understand it. But that isn’t what this is. This is a test meant to ensure that the apparatus is in place and operational in the event the government wants to prevent communication between citizens: this is a test to make sure they CAN shut it all down if they choose to.
Think Egypt here. As the protest crowds grew in Egypt, what did the government do? They shut down all cell phones and internet access in an effort to halt communications. It didn’t stop anything, the crowds still grew, but the idea behind this action was clear.
I believe what is actually behind this might be the downloading of some kind of code needed to make the shut-down apparatus work efficiently. Think about your cable system if you have one or even an upgrade to many computer programs. A new code must be downloaded and installed, then the system shutdown and re-booted for the changes to take effect. And, just like these coded program changes in computers and cable, once you re-boot, whatever was newly installed is activated and just runs silently behind the scenes. In fact, in almost every case, you are not even aware of what changes were made. I have a strange feeling this is what is happening here. I also think this is somehow attached to the all-digital system they forced everyone onto a few years back.
Being a rather rational and logical person, the idea of shutting off communications of all kinds during a national emergency just doesn’t make any sense to me. Why would anyone want to do that? Wouldn’t your first reaction be to make sure communications were all intact and operational? Unless of course, their definition of an emergency is something other than say extreme weather, floods or things of that kind.
In what kind of emergency situation would it benefit the public to have all communications shut down? I can’t even think of one.
If I were the government I could see where it could be really handy especially in light of the steady growing unrest across the country. Of course their phones, computers and broadcast systems would all be working just fine as their communications systems are independent of the system the public uses.
We have long since passed the point where we can trust government on any level. This impending communications shut down is only a test run for something far more serious. This is not about public safety, emergency response or any of the other fluff and hype put out to try and explain why the government would engage in such a test. In my opinion, this is merely a test run for a future event which could be catastrophic as far as the general public is concerned.
Keep your eyes and ears open…….something is afoot here and it doesn’t look good for most of us.

If i had to take a guess... it would probably not necessarily be that they mean to run a drill on shutting communications down. I do think they might shut communications down if they felt a need for it...but what does that have to do with the EBS? Would they not simply test a giant off switch by...switching everything off? and could no doubt accomplish that without any announcement in a fraction of the time.


I'm leaning more toward the possibility that they are testing their ability to broadcast a single message or signal through all forms of communication...and i don't mean an emergency alert message.  A trigger signal to jump start the black awakening? A world wide broadcast of a new and exciting global leader? "The Aliens have landed" announcement?

Actually i expect any of the three possibilities i mentioned to be a worldwide occurrence... i assume anything which is off the grid of this test will undergo its own testing for the ability to do the same.

FEMA urges Americans not to worry as national alert system is tested

 The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are spearheading an aggressive public education campaign reminding Americans not to panic when they lose television and radio service for a few minutes on Wednesday during a test of the Emergency Alert System. Although the public alert mechanism is decades old and often tested and used at the local level, it has never before been tested on a nationwide scale. This first-ever test will occur at 2:00pm EST on Wednesday, November 9 and will occur simultaneously across the U.S. and its territories, lasting up to three-and-a-half-minutes.

You are right Tristan, btw, I love that name, TPTB do want us to live in fear.  Its also a way to disinform and keep the real "plan" a secret by giving out all the "lies" to hide the truth among.  And why this is, I do not know, but, it seems they do have  or want to tell us in advance in some movie or television or book content of every thing they do.  Is it like coup? maybe I thave thought, its the con man who is the king of the theft racket, he gets you to give away your hard earned money, they are "above" using a hand gun and force.  The outcome is the same, you still get ripped off.  One of the comments I saw on Richard Hoaglands vid was this poor woman who is so afraid of the comet/astroid hitting us, she went to church and now is considering taking a handful of pills, she is so afraid. That is the "con".  Get then to do it by their own hand.  I saw that much of the plan. Talk is cheap.  And there are members of the CIA who all they do is sit on the computer and stir this big old internet pot in the direction his bosses tell him or her.  I know one and over the years we have become "friendly" I suppose you could put it.  I do like him now, cause he just likes me, he will still do his job and disinform me if I go "out in the net world" (where the traffic warrants, like at Godlike) , and I know he is just doing his job.  This place was inventet by them for a purpose, the web, not TNL.  And they are playing the world over it.  Think about it.  Its brilliant, really .  As a strategic planner,, I say they have in down pat.  They are all just men and women like you or I.  And they too have personal opinions that may be different from their employers, just like you and  I do also.  Keep the faith, brother.  Watch everything and trust only Father. 

Ask for discernment for this stuff.  Let Him help you dig through the mess and identify those things important for you.  He will if you ask.



Did anyone hear the test? I didn't...having no television around here. Just curious to hear if it was an average EAS test or if there was anything extra in it.


By Increments... that's how they've always done things. When big things happen you often see individuals after the fact noticing the implications of the date it happened on or other occult symbology that surrounded it.  Just about Never do the big things happen after large amounts of people discuss the possibility of it...note the numerological factors of predicted dates, etc. 


The more dangerous events really are notable in the slow boil anyway. It's in this way that people come to gradually accept more and more wrong. They become numb...they stop taking note because nothing big has happened in their own back yard. It's the little things that have taken the world where it is's the little things for the most part that will continue to dismantle the world.


People are the greatest disaster to themselves as they allow themselves to become mentally lazy, forgetful and dependent upon the system to think for them. Here's a little test for that... seasonal weather. Think back to the last winter in your area and see if you can recall the conditions...was it a bad one? Did a lot of snow fall? How about the season before that....try comparing the last several winters to one a decade ago. If you can do that...congratulations, you're probably one of a few who can recognize how strange and contrived the weather has gotten. Now go ask some friends or neighbors.... i'll bet they can't do this long term comparison. In this same way, everything is quickly dissolved in most people's memories these blur together in a week or two and then disappear entirely as if they never happened. People are being put to sleep and most seem happy to slumber.


FEMA/FCC Takeover Test Fails In Certain Areas, Weird Noises Heard In Others

November 9, 2011

The FEMA/FCC takeover test was scheduled to happen nationwide about 17 minutes ago. Here in Portland we got a warning about 5 minutes before 11am pacific but then the test never happened.

I repeat, we got no FEMA test here in Portland. Others on different forums are reporting that it didnt happen in their area either while at the same time many are reporting they did see the test at least for a few seconds.

Right now I think its safe to assume the test DID NOT fully work.

In Florida, Intel Hub reporter and radio host Bob Tuskin reported strange sounds coming form his radio that he described as a possible form of mind control! Update: A station manager in Florida confirmed the weird noises and diluted voices that Bob Tuskin heard.


It is confirmed that it did not happen in many of the cities throughout the United States.

Many people are reporting that they saw a completely different message depending on what part of the country they were in.

Others are reporting strange blinking and noises that absolutely could be interpreted as some sort of mind control. There is a high possibility that this whole test or whatever it actually is was meant to confuse the public.

I have to admit, I some times just don't get everything this guy says, and I disagree with him on lots of "theology".  But he is different.  He is some how got something with the money folding its just there plain in your face to see.  He is well, he has been saying the 11.11.11 is on the new penny from last year.  I know so many folks that see 11's but until you said that Tristan, ding bat that I am, I did not make that connection at all.

The website posted has two of the most sincere mainstreamish Christian men on it I have ever met among a real handful of them Father has blessed me with knowing this past year.  While their theology could use something, IMO, they are trying to reach people with the truth as they know it.  I want to set them down most days and tell them a thing or two, but well. I just pray for them instead.

Cyprium I did not see "it" and tried to find it on youtube: nothing.   Is Hoagland squirming after the moon didn't sound like a gong last night? Nooooooo he is doing the sit and spin, spin , spin.  


Remember what happens when you Assume?

I also searched youtube for possible recordings of the test and found none. I thought this was somewhat strange since there has been plenty of discussion about it on the internet. It's very interesting to me that some heard strange sounds and voices. If this was a failed test of a wide range trigger, i give Him all the credit for its failure and am very grateful it did not reach the ears of some whom i would have concern for if it was such a signal.

Tristran - "This new ager says that some of these 'helpers' have left the bowels of the earth and are here on the surface to help us. Somehow I sense the word 'Tartarus' and that YHWH has allowed the gate to that place to be opened."


Maybe you can see how the enemy likes to mix a little truth with a lie. Some have left tartarus, the prison to come to the surface and seduce mankind, not help them. Not much has changed since it was last done perhaps, except that they have ascended from the pit instead of descending from Heaven and are covertly acting upon the will of mankind, instead of overtly interacting with them.

Thank you. In one showing someone dialing through radio stations i noted a very strange tone coming from some and what sounded like nothing but static from others. There is something very disturbing about the normal EAS tone itself. I am not sure how others might feel about it, but it is a sound that has the immediate effect of causing anxiety in my observation.

"Termination Alert" is some very peculiar wording as well.
