Thanks to those who contacted me off list...

Unfortunately, I did not see a fact sheet released from FEMA this year or I would have known that the NPT was to be relayed automatically.  I was going by basic information from various sources.

What's interesting to me is this part from the FEMA fact sheet...
>>>>>
On test day, broadcasters receive the NPT from the IPAWS EAS ATOM Feed and automatically relay the NPT and associated audio message to the public and other stations according to State EAS Plans.
<<<<<

My log shows receipt of the NPT from IPAWS at 14:20:55.  If we had planned to run this exactly at 14:20, there would have been 55-seconds of dead air until it automatically forwarded.  Unless I'm missing something...?  Did anyone else receive this at 14:20:55?

Thanks....

George

Hi all...

Was today's regional test supposed to be an automatic relay type of test, so that all of the stations broadcast the test at the same time?  I thought it was supposed to be handled like an RMT, where the test is received and it's relayed within 30-minutes....?
