Here's a test of the Emergency Broadcast System from ABC affiliate WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas, TX. This test goes off without a hitch, as the requisite dual tones of 853 and 960 Hz are heard for 23 seconds.

Voiceover by ?? (with the EBS script displayed on screen via different slides, set in Helvetica Medium; albeit differing in some areas from how the voiceover read the script).

"This station serves the Dallas operational area." (What, no reference to Fort Worth or the Metroplex? ;-\ )

This aired on local Dallas-Fort Worth TV on Thursday, December 14th 1978 at about 3:51pm (not from Chicago, but still of interest nonetheless).
