I may have missed the latest info on IPAWS... what is the current
status? The last IPAWS RWT I have received was December 28. My DASDEC
says it is still talking to their server. Should I be getting RWTs
now? If not... why?

I received this note from the person setting the system up: "I had to send out two test RWTs on the production server, one EST the other PR/USVI. The next should (in theory) on Sunday, January 15th at 2000 EST (for Guam)."
> CAP EAS devices may have logged the RWTs issued this morning (Tuesday, January 10) depending upon their device settings.
> The previously described Monday morning single RWT exercise routine should run automatically from this point forward. CAP RWT messages will be sent at 11 AM in each of 9 local time zones extending from Guam& CNMI (UTC +10 "Where America's Day Begins") to American Samoa (UTC -11).
> There will be one CAP RWT issued per time zone on a whole state basis during the local 11:00 AM hour each Monday. (For purposes of these exercises states divided into two time zones are assigned to the time zone that includes the largest area within the state.)
> Status reports noting any variances to the described exercise routine will be posted to these discussion lists as they are reported/discovered.
