Re: Conelrad question

The answer to that question is "yes, absolutely." In the event of an attack
warning, all regular broadcasting (regular AM, all FM, and all TV) was
supposed to cease. Conelrad would be the only thing on the air that anyone
without a short-wave receiver could pick up (and relatively few people in
the US had short-wave receivers). Not all AMs participated in the Conelrad
plan, but most did. Nonparticipating stations had to go off the air for the
duration of the alert.
