Are you saying that there might still be a place in EAS for the daisy chain?

Subject: Re: [sbe-eas] EAN
I have been trying to keep up with the great number of emails about the EAN
test and other issues. Great discussions that government officials should
read daily. One aspect of EAS that was most important in developnig EAS was
the survivability aspect.
Radio stations seem to be able to survive because of their transmitter
sites, emergency electric power and most important the engineers that keep
the stations on the air. That is also why interstation signallng was an
important part of the system design. Also certain parts of the country and
trust territories have questionable connection to information.
EAN was designed for use by the President whenever he/she wants it from
wherever he/she is within 10 minutes. FEMA funds those parts that need to
connect the government to the industry. This also holds true to state and
local officials who want to use the system.
