Discontinuance of earthquake alerts on J1 Radio/J1ラジオ:地震予知情報の喪失

EAS: The FCC is asking all broadcast stations to file ETRS Form One by August 27. REC is pushing for 100% LPFM participation. If you need help, please let us know. Filing services available for all three ETRS Forms. Retain REC now! 1-844-REC-LPFM. Participation is mandatory whether you do it yourself or we do it..

Due to changes being made by Twitter in August, 2018, REC/J1 Radio has identified that those changes may potentially impact our software that is used to provide real-time Japanese earthquake information.  This functionality is what plays the earthquake warning tones and announcements on J1 and J1xtra as well as real time logging of earthquake alerts on our earthquake site (eew.j1fm.tokyo).  

It would have no impact on the final earthquake outcomes that originate from the Japan Meteorological Agency approximately 5 minutes after the earthquake or the flash region intensity data provided from a third party provider.  

Shortly after the Great Tohoku Earthquake in 2011, REC started to develop this Earthquake Early Warning system and has been operating mostly reliabily since late 2011.  

We will look for alternative methods of providing this information.  As always, if you are in Japan, please listen or view NHK for official information.  In the event of tsunami, information in English is usually broadcast on NHK Radio 2.

We apologize for the loss of this service.  Unfortunately, this is a situation beyond our control.

レッコネット/J1ラジオは、2018年8月にTwitterを変更することにより、J1およびJ1xtraの放送とJ1地震情報のウェブサイト上でリアルタイムの地震速報情報を提供することはできません。

J1ラジオでは、地震発生後、気象庁が提供する情報や、各地域の新堂情報を引き続き掲載していきます。

J1ラジオは、東北地方太平洋沖地震の影響を受け、2011年に地震予知システムを導入しました。

我々は、この情報を提供するための代替方法を模索する。 日本にお住まいの方は、NHKラジオやテレビで公式の情報を聞いてください。

重要な情報資源の喪失に起因する不便をお詫びします。 これは我々がコントロールできない問題です。
