National EAS ETRS Forms Due August 2018

It’s nearly National EAS Testing time. The FCC is getting ready for the 2018 National EAS Test. All radio and television broadcasters, including LPFM radio stations are required to fill out the ETRS form one by August 27. I can prepare and file the three forms for you for only $150 per station. 903-270-1500

Form One requires each EAS participant to file a separate Form One for each EAS decoder, EAS encoder, or unit combining such decoder and encoder functions.
