Re: When is EAS test

Are the "local" tests scheduled on a regular basis?  I am under the impression that they have to be somewhat random.

 

I know there's a "national" test scheduled for either September 20 or October 3 at 2:20 PM Eastern.

EAS now are handled by local/state/federal government agencies and they don't publish when tests happen.
