Generally, that's probably correct, but not always. I believe the way they
have things et up at 420 Western Avenue is that activations run
automatically on all the stations in the buildings, even those that have
live operators. I seem to remember doing a live on show on WMGX a couple of
years ago and having the EAS system take control of the station when there
was a flood warning for Cumberland County. I think required tests are
delayed until a stopset.

That's right. I worked with him at KISS 100, many years ago and remember
him as a pleasant co-worker.
