Since almost everyone else reports receiving the alert, (I even got it down here in AR!) do you have any ideas why you did not? Like no cell service, uncooperative carrier??

We didn't get anything. We wonder how many others failed? If
it's lots, that's an important fact. Thanks, Bill, for suggesting
we report in.

The IPAWS National Test
September 17, 2018
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in
coordination with the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the
Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless
Emergency Alerts (WEA) on the backup date of October 3, 2018
due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane
Florence. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m.
EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m.
I think it would be interesting to get an informal poll
here about this test. Did you get anything? Was the message
clear? did your friends wonder what was going on? etc...
