Emergency Broadcast System issuing "Monthly Tests" almost every night. Am I the only one?

I just find it completely annoying that every night I get like 4 "Monthly" tests for the EBS. That insane annoying buzz followed by the even worse computer tone from the 80's. Am I the only one dealing with this or are other ATS'ers noticing that it is way way way too much for monthly tests? I am on Comcast in South Carolina. U?

You aren't the only one. I got TWO last night alone on Cable television here. The first was a "Required Weekly Test" by the "Civil Authorities" mid evening and then at about 4am another came on for a Weather related "Required Weekly Test". Now these used to be monthly and the point was to TEST it...not to let everyone who subscribed to the channels to SEE the 'test'. I keep getting the idea they are getting us desensitized to the concept of seeing these often, for real.

To be completly honest I have also been noticing more EMERGENCY BROADCAST alerts also. In my area they used to be the first Tuesday of every month, however, it seems to be almost nightly. I do have to agree with you.

No, I get them just about every night here on Comcast in NW Indiana.It is funny that it says monthly,but it happens nearly every night.I've been workin wierd hours lately,so my hours are kind of wierd,so I usually notice the tests around 3-4 a.m.

Also the OP reminded me of this good thread,possibly a connection,as they are getting ready to use a new system or something else...

I believe they are doing national training for the first time coordinating with Fema and the National Guard and all that. There's been some posts on here about it and i'll see if I can find the link.

I don't hear them. But most nights I don't have the tv or radio on and we don't have loudspeakers outside where I live. Interesting that so many of you are starting to notice them often. I hope people don't come to ignore them when they are needed....or maybe that IS the purpose!

Since I posted this I have heard 2 more. I seems with the response that many people are noticing this to be happening more often then in the past. What does it mean? Why are they doing this?
