December 1, 2005 at 3:20 PM (PT)
D.A.V.I.D. SYSTEMS has announced the addition of Emergency Alert System (EAS) support to its program associated data (PAD) functionality, giving stations the ability to display EAS alerts as text on RBDS and HD enabled radios as well as on their websites. The new “EAS Listener” connects to EAS receivers via RS232 and monitors for incoming alerts. When an alert is issued, the EAS Listener formats the text and sends it to RBDS enabled radios via Program Service Text or Radio Text. HD Radio enabled receivers will also receive and display the text message.
