State EAS Map & District-Specific AM Radio Coverage/Listeners
TAB has prepared the following district-specific handouts to help Radio stations make their case with Congressional offices for cosponsoring HR 3413, the AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act.
Each Handout Includes:
- A Texas EAS Plan map showing which EAS regions rely on an AM Radio station as a Local Primary station responsible for disseminating EAS alerts to other stations in their region.
- A list of the four Texas AM Radio stations possessing “battle-hardened” Primary Entry Point (PEP) facilities funded by the federal government to ensure that a Presidential emergency message can reach 90% of Americans in one minute. There are 70 nationwide.
- A map of Texas showing AM Radio station coverage areas and listenership statewide, as well as by DMA.
- A map of the Congressional district listing the number of AM Radio stations and describing the kind of programming aired, with station coverage areas overlaid on the district boundaries.
- A recent example of AM Radio coming to the rescue in a natural disaster.
