EAS Testing

The times shown are the origination times of State Tests. The tests may be received by your stations up to 2 hours after the origination time. This depends on whether your station has a direct link or relay with other stations. State monthly tests (RMT) are required and must be re-transmitted within 60 minutes of the time they are received. Weekly local tests (RWT) are also required to be run.

Stations are reminded that their EAS receiver must be programmed to receive all of the codes listed in the Oklahoma State Plan. If you need a copy of the Plan, contact the OAB office.
