    At 8:28am today I was in the car and OPB 91.5 started an EAS event. I don’t know if it was a test, or an actual warning as all that happened over two minutes was random sounding of individual tones (not in the correct sequence), and absolutely no voice either live or recorded came on air.

    I guess we had an “upgrade” to software again.



    KOAC AM 550 was transmitting the same garbage. 🙁

    My cell phone says it was a Amber Alert in Spokane.



    KRVM had two EAS events this morning, both regarding a child abduction AMBER Alert in Spokane. They came through very clearly on both the main program and on HD2 a minute or so later. The speaking voice was very robotic but intelligible.



    In the Hillsboro Costco parking lot, I tuned in 530 kHz, and I heard a woman’s voice announcing the Amber alert on WPVS690.
