Form 1 Deadline Looms

The clock is ticking for all radio and television stations to submit their annual Form One filings on the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) EAS Test Reporting System portal (ETRS).  Data that needs to be entered includes routine licensing information like FCC registration number, station ownership, call letters, frequencies, transmitter coordinates and counties of license.  The FCC also requires broadcasters to submit specific information about their role in the Emergency Alert System (EAS), including:

  • EAS equipment make & model
  • EAS equipment software version
  • EAS designation
  • EAS monitoring assignments

We have made some of that information easier for you to submit.  NHAB maintains our statewide list of monitoring assignments in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet which you can download.

You’ll need to know your designation within our state plan.  Use this guide.
