All EAS equipment must be tested on a weekly basis. The required weekly test (RWT) consists, at a minimum, of the header and end-of-message tones. Though an RWT does not need an audio or graphic message announcing the test, many stations provide them as a courtesy to the public. In addition, television stations are not required to transmit a video message for weekly tests. RWTs are scheduled by the station on random days and times, (though quite often during late night or early afternoon hours), and are generally not relayed.

last night i was in my bed watching a movie with the sound very low so much you need closed captions yo know whats going on.
all of a sudden there were these three loud and perfectly spaced beeps.
it startled ,e so much i even rewound the move and listed to the whole thing for this beeping and obviously there was nothing there.
sometimes you hear about this beeping like with Betty hill, but nothing happened to me like with her.
i checked everything i could think of that made noise in my room and could not replicate the beeps, it sounded in length like *beeeeeeeeep*with no pause the same length beep happened twice.
anyone else have this happen to them ever
