EAS tests and messages
Why is it that when the local U-Verse hub broadcasts either an EAS test or emergency warning, such as a flash flood warning, the audio level of the entire test and message is at least +20 Dba above the average program level? It just happened this morning at 11:45am, July 2. The message transmitted was a Required Weekly Test. As a retired broadcast engineer I understand the need to transmit these tests and warnings, but please get youe audio levels under control! When ANY of the DFW local stations transmit similar tests their audio levels during the test are consistent with their average program level. Yes, it is only when U-Verse itself broadcasts these tests and messages. Yes, I do have a calibrated audio meter that shows me how much louder your tests are than the locals. Please fix this. One day you will blow out someone's speakers or amplifier and you really will know what an angry customer sounds like.
