I vote disapprove on this ballot on the grounds the letter to the FCC is
written in a way that it gives the incorrect impression the entire 802
membership has analyzed the NPRM and come to the conclusions presented in
the letter.  The letter should be revised to accurately characterize the
fact that a subset of 802.11 and 802.15 voted in favor of the positions
developed in the letter.  The multiple references to 'the Committee' in the
letter should be changed to 'xxx members of the Working Groups 802.11 and

Additionally, the letter should be revised to more crisply support the
position of the members of 802.11 and 802.15 along the lines Roger Marks
presented.  Grammatical errors need to be corrected too.
