  § 11.2   Definitions.

   The definitions of terms used in part 11 are:

   (a) Emergency Action Notification (EAN). The Emergency Action
   Notification is the notice to all EAS Participants and to the general
   public that the EAS has been activated for a national emergency. EAN
   messages that are formatted in the EAS Protocol (specified in § 11.31)
   are sent from a government origination point to broadcast stations and
   other entities participating in the PEP system, and are subsequently
   disseminated via EAS Participants. Dissemination arrangements for EAN
   messages that are formatted in the EAS Protocol (specified in § 11.31)
   at the State and local levels are specified in the State and Local Area
   plans (defined at § 11.21). A national activation of the EAS for a
   Presidential message with the Event code EAN as specified in § 11.31
   must take priority over any other message and preempt it if it is in
   progress.

   (b) EAS Participants. Entities required under the Commission's rules to
   comply with EAS rules, e.g., analog radio and television stations, and
   wired and wireless cable television systems, DBS, DTV, SDARS, digital
   cable and DAB, and wireline video systems.

   (c) Wireline Video System. The system of a wireline common carrier used
   to provide video programming service.

   (d) Intermediary Device. An intermediary device is a stand-alone device
   that carries out the functions of monitoring for, receiving and/or
   acquiring, and decoding EAS messages formatted in the Common Alerting
   Protocol (CAP) in accordance with § 11.56, and converting such messages
   into a format that can be inputted into a separate EAS decoder, EAS
   encoder, or unit combining such decoder and encoder functions, so that
   the EAS message outputted by such separate EAS decoder, EAS encoder, or
   unit combining such decoder and encoder functions, and all other
   functions attendant to processing such EAS message, comply with the
   requirements in this part.
