Yeah my bad Corey I meant Jones WQYM541 lol. I looked at the wrong username in my messages,
I asked an FCC enforcement officer about this matter in person at the Kansas Association of Broadcasters convention last October. He said he would ask his people, and get back to me. I called his number back and left a voice-mail in December. I still have heard absolutely nothing.
I also sent a detailed email to a communications law firm in Washington DC about this, and got nothing from them either.
As of this time, I am still using a Sage Alerting Systems EAS box on my GMRS repeater. I have it set to ignore all tests, watches, announcements, statements, and all the other useless stuff that gets sent over NOAA radio, but it does auto-forward severe weather warnings for my coverage area, state-wide AMBER alerts, and National Emergency Activation Notification messages. (...and there have never been any of those)
EAS timeout is set to 2 minutes, but many of the alerts are shorter than that, and the thing will re-set when the end-of-message tones go through. It is enough to get my attention, give me the basic facts, then I can go find another radio to tune in, or get online if I need more information.
