WVTV Channel 18 [Milwaukee, WI] - "Partial EBS Test" (1980)
Here's a partial test of the Emergency Broadcasting System on an unknown station in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. The person was recording some Woody Woodpecker cartoons and although they cut out the commercials they did decide to record most of the EBS test. It's pretty simple, consisting only of a single, rather discolored slide.
Did they have to traumatize kids by airing these tests during cartoons? It seems like they did the same thing in Chicago too from what I recall. They couldn't have aired them during more adult programming?
Voiceover by Bob Beringer.
This station serves the Southeast Wisconsin operational area..."
This aired on local Milwaukee TV in (most likely) early 1980.
