Red Zone Test Number : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

While attempting to call AEP (American Electric Power) through an 800 number, I evidently misdialed. An operator answered and asked if I wanted "Home or Business".

I indicated "Business"

I was then transfered to a recording that kept repeating

"This is a Red Zone Test Number...This is a Red Zone Test Number"

Is there any significance to this?

Or is it a typical response to somrthing.

I have the number but will not give it out over the web.

I just thought I would say that My family is powered by AEP and I had them call. You must have called the Twilight Zone because that did not happen to us....

Call them back and ask for 'home', then let us know more.
