I do remember the annoying tones. They are called sine wave codes. It's no longer known as the Emergency Broadcast System, it's now called The Emergency Alert System. You can hear it on the site below.
This has been a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. Had this been an actual emergency, you would have been alerted about where to turn for further information. This concludes this test of the Emergency Broadcast System.
