Mobile phones should start pinging early this afternoon


Don't be alarmed later this afternoon if your phone gives off some strange tones.

It's another National "Alert Ready" system test.

It's scheduled for 1:55 p.m.

TV, Radio and wireless devices will transmit a test message at that time.

In past tests, some hand held devices have reported problems with device and signal compatibility.
