As many of you know, there is another nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System coming up on Thursday September 20th. This test will also includes a WEA (Wireless Emergency Alert) test message to be sent to cell phones. Be aware that, on or before 11:59 p.m. EDT, the day of the test (Sept. 20, 2018), EAS participants must file the day-of-test information sought by ETRS Form Two. This Newsletter includes information on what FEMA will do the day of the test, as well as some links to help you prepare.

Steve Dresser is taking a quick summer break from the FCC applications and actions desk, but will return next month.

We have a great meeting coming up featuring a presentation by Eddy Vanderkerken, director of sales from the Broadcast division of RFS (Radio Frequency Systems). They’ll be hosting the July lunch meeting at the Mitsui Buffet. As always, bring any questions, concerns, and updates you may have for the meeting before the RFS presentation. Hope to see you there.
