Would it have made that much difference? Most of the communications  
antennas were on the WTC towers. If you had ever been up there you would have  
seen it resembled a lawn of antennas up there. 
When they knock out your communications system it doesn't make too much  
difference how many alerts you send out. I can tell you the people with any 
sort  of radios had crowds around them when no one's cell phones worked.
