Sage Alerting Systems has announced a free firmware update for its ENDEC model 3644.
Firmware Version 89-34 “addresses a changed requirement in the FCC EAS rules, Part 11.33(a)(10), which affects how the valid time frame of an alert is determined.” That modifies the current method of frame validation, according to the company.
The company adds, “This release does not affect the ENDEC’s reception and relay of the scheduled Aug. 7, 2019 National Periodic Test. Whether your ENDEC is running version 89-30, 89-32, or this new version 89-34, your ENDEC will relay the NPT.”

Perhaps larger than this specific update is a notice from Sage of an upcoming September update that will address changes to the IPAWS server. That update will be a paid update. More information on that coming.
