That was a really messy test, but as indicated, it was the first time it has been ever tested. I went thru a dozen radio stations programmed in my car radio, really only had one a could undetstand, but all the others I heard the tones coming across again and again while the voice message was being played and was barely understood. Some I couldn't even hear at all. They have a long, long way to go to get this working right. If they are going to rely on it, hope that money isn't an issue, because if it is, "We The People" are "Hosed" in the even of a real emergency !!! It should have been done on the NWS as well since they did shorten the time of the message from 3 minutes to 30 seconds. No excuse why they didn't since I was told thats why they couldn't, because the SAME system can only hold up to 2 minutes...
