Don't forget about the national EAS test on November 9.  (And I'm with
you on the RWTs: even once a week is too frequent.  And who was the
idiot who decided that my TiVo should interrupt playback of a prerecorded
program for a useless, but live, test message anyway?  I'd be OK if it
did that just for EANs or state-wide alerts.)
