EAS override is inoperative, but only part of the time
I live in Ocala and whenever I get an EAS override on my cable boxes, I sometimes get Cox's "Call to subscribe" message, as though I do not have a cable subscription. It most recently happened around 5:05 PM on 9/2 (possibly related to Hurricane Dorian; portions of Marion County were under a Tropical Storm Watch as of the alert time) but happens intermittently whenever an EAS code appears on my cable box.
The problem is compounded by the fact that, whenever I get an EAS message from Alachua County (via WUFT), the system works as intended: I get a sequence of 4 screens of text (2 in english, 2 in spanish) with 2 EAS audio loops, all detailing the alert, then back to programming.
It's just that whenever the EAS message does NOT originate from WUFT that the "call to subscribe" message appears.
