RMT – Regular Monthly Test Schedule

The Local Primary (LP1) station will generate the RMT during each of the quarter-hour windows listed below:

FCC rules, Part 11, require all participating radio and television stations, and cable and satellite distribution systems to rebroadcast, or relay, the RMT within 60 seconds of receiving it on your Emergency Alert System monitor device.

Each Required Monthly Test is scheduled to occur on the first Wednesday of each month in compliance with the following FCC requirement: “Tests in odd-numbered months shall occur between 8:30 a.m. and local sunset. Tests in even numbered months shall occur between local sunset and 8:30 a.m.” (CFR 47, 11.61)
