Some thoughts on this thread -
> Granted most translators are RF frequency shifting devices (some are not)
> All these system could be order/modified to permit the injection of local-
applicable EAS public warning messages. It's a matter of desire.
> When it comes to EAS, all too many feel that it's an unfunded mandate
> To the Feds - EAS is a, last-ditch, presidential message distribution
> To every one else - This is OUR public warning system
> All good and effective EAS systems (and yes, there are many) go beyond
what is required by the FCC to make them that way.
> Good EAS requires contributions from many- it is, as it should be, \
a cooperative activity.
> Putting economic considerations ahead of potentially saving a life is
not way I would call being a good citizen.
