WXYZ EBS Test On youtube

Post by nick_a727 » Mon Nov 19, 2018 2:48 pm

For many YouTube users finally the WXYZ ABC channel 7 EBS Test is up. Date of the test conducted was on November 25, 1980 between 4-5:30pm during its afternoon movie and the script went the other way around when the Blue screen saying “this has been a test of the Emergency Activation Notification System” and heard just the last second of the EBS tone with the word This has been a test had scrolled up.

I spotted it on YouTube Monday afternoon the WXYZ EBS Test which is called the Emergency Action Notification System in part of the closing script mention about the attack warning in the United States.

It’s the old EBS test. Nothing to see here... but it’s good for archives.

In one of the posts how they talked about the zoomed in CD logo at the end, someone used the similar way for the Flint area stations especially WSMH which was already up on YouTube. Someone mentioned about the WJRT 12 EBS Test did the same way like WXYZ 7 did but with a different color and used the Regular EBS Test Script.

What Attack
The WXYZ EBS Test said “Possibly an attack warning - and the Emergency Broadcast System was being activated”. If this had been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed to tune to one of the stations in your area.

Cool find indeed. I myself have yet to find any EBS/EAS tests from my local stations, but I have a severe storm warning bug on a tape from 2005, if that matters much.
