stds-802-16-tg3: UNII Band/NTIA Issues/IEEE 802.18 Regs

Hi All: For all of you that are contemplating or are currently developing 
equipment operating in the UNII bands, the message from Carl Stevenson of 
the  the IEEE 802.18 Regs group should be of considerable 
real it is ( whether the NTIA is actually going to make an application to 
the FCC) is still a matter of speculation and it should  treated as such 
until more substantial information becomes available

I will be attending the IEEE 802.18 Regs meetings in Vancouver. If you have 
any concerns, issues,
etc. regarding the 5 GHz band regs please contact me before or at  the 
plenary so that I can voice them. The IEEE 802.18 regs
committee is an  important vehicle to us since it is one of the best ways 
to make our technical and applications concerns known to
  the FCC and the ITU-R.....especially  if  you are  troubled by the rumors 
in Carl's message.///JTS///


I am forwarding this message for your information.

I was also on a conference call today in which an
NTIA representative confirmed the fact that NTIA
is likely to petition the FCC to reopen the U-NII
rules (they have not done so yet, but it appears
likely that they will do so in the near future.)
