Yes, as a national broadcaster, they do run a weekly test and the RMT as well. My question to you: If it was an RMT, did they run the 8 seconds of the old EBS Alert Tones in addition to the triple duck farts? When they had the National EAS test a while back, Sirius did NOT have the EBS attention signals, only the duck farts, bad audio and the 3 EOM farts - it was muted where the 8 seconds of tone should have been. I'm assuming that the Canadian customers would hear this as well, so what about Canada- do they have a similar EAS as we do? If so, I would think that it would have to be carried on the Canuk channels, but also any channel enabled for Canadian customers?
