May we introduce you to a resource where you will find quick answers when, for example, the Monday IPAWS CAP RWT doesn’t happen? Please check the EAS Page here.

We are grateful that the FEMA has generally continued to provide the weekly tests each Monday. This is an excellent tool to help stations ensure their EAS receivers stay connected to the Internet and are decoding properly.

However, when a test is missed, doubled, or otherwise botched, the FEMA generally will only note it at the end of the month, in their summary.

Meantime, you are invited to check out the EAS Page for information on reported missing tests and other EAS issues.
