Okay not really but I remember reading an article posted here that Nov. 9th the govt is shutting down all telecommunications as a "test"...

Anyone know what time that is supposed to take place?

 They are not SHUTTING DOWN telecommunications. Its a nationwide test of the Emergency Broadcast, it only lasts 30 secs to 1 1/2 mins

I knew it was something like that, it was the only terminology I could think of. I know how long; just don't know when.

They said it's like an emergency broadcast test but that it possibly won't say it's a test.
