With the Nationwide EAS Test scheduled for August 7, 2019, State EAS/SECC Chairman Gary Blievernicht has announced that all scheduled regional Required Monthly Tests (RMTs) scheduled for the month of August should be cancelled.  47 CFR 11.61(3)(ii) states, “A national test shall replace the required weekly and monthly tests for all EAS participants … in the week and month in which it occurs.”

So, for the week of August 5-11, stations do not have to run a Required Weekly Test (or RMT if one was scheduled in your particular EAS region).

EAS participants should also note that if there is a RMT scheduled later in the month in their region, they need to replace that RMT in that week with a weekly test.

If you have any questions, contact Dan Kelley at the MAB.
