How did I miss this? From the TAB “Tennessee Association of Broadcasters”


TO: All TAB Radio and Television,


The FCC will have a DIRS exercise for broadcasters on August 23-24, 2018.  The purpose of this exercise is to help users become familiar with the system and be ready to file DIRS reports when a real disaster strikes.


We will send out the DIRS 2018 EXERCISE activation letter at 10 AM (EDT) on August 23, 2018. Your first set of reports will be due at 3 PM on August 23.  We will also ask you to update your reports by 11 AM on August 24.


The URL for DIRS is https://www.fcc.gov/nors/disaster/


·         If you do not have a login, there is a link on the login page which will allow you to get a User ID and password. 

·         When you create a new account, under “Reporting Company”, please use your company name instead of station name.  By using the company name, you only need one account to input information on multiple stations that your company owns.  

·         If you have a User ID, but do not remember your password, please use the forgotten password link on the login page. 

·         If you have a User ID and a password, please use them to log into DIRS and update your contact information. 

·         There is a User Manual available at the DIRS website. 


Anybody else hear of this before today? Have I been sleeping?
