What is ERN?

The GWES EAS Relay Network (ERN) is a system of decommissioned (and some brand new) broadcast EAS equipment, repurposed by enthusiasts for internal alerting of civil emergencies or hazardous weather. The network is a revival of GWES Weather Network and its program to relay EAS messages.
