The RMT must be rebroadcast within 15 minutes of receipt.  You can't
program the unit to delay it longer than that.

For just about any other format it's not an issue, but for classical it
is a problem.

If it's true that the Red Sox game on WEEI Tuesday night was not
interrupted, that's very interesting.  The test was sent by WBMX at 10:20
pm, so WEEI should have aired it by 10:35.
