A particular NPR affliate may or may not connect its EAS equipment
to the NPR national squawk channel. I don't know of a national list of NPR
affliates which are setup to re-transmit EANs from their squawk channel.
Each state/local committee would need to check with each NPR affliate how
it was configured.
PEPAC filed a letter last summer describing some of the history
Its almost like a quasi-version of the old EAN Network. Diversity
is also useful. Disasters come in all forms. A mix of terrestrial,
satellite, and wired is probably a good idea in plans.
Should other national networks such as Comcast, Directv, DISH, Sirius/XM,
C-SPAN, NASA TV, Verizon, etc be part of the core diversity of the EAS web
instead of just being at the edge or left out completely?
